Jackie S. Huberman

Jackie S. Huberman, M.Sc., Ph.D.
2012 – 2020

Jackie is currently a SSHRC postdoctoral fellow at Dalhousie University, working with Dr. Natalie Rosen. Her research has used multi-method approaches to study the psychophysiology of sexual response, with a focus on gender differences and similarities, as well as processes contributing to women’s sexual arousal and desire. For her doctoral work, Jackie has used EEG to study neural responses involved in processing sexual cues. She has also investigated the role of women’s sexual self-schemas–particularly their organization–in women’s sexuality. Together, her work contributes to the development of comprehensive models of sexual response.
