Sam is currently completing her doctoral residency at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. She received her undergraduate (B.A. Honours, Psychology) and graduate (M.Sc., Psychology) degrees from the University of Lethbridge, under the supervision of Dr. Martin Lalumière. Sam’s doctoral studies have been funded through an Ontario Trillium Scholarship and an Ontario Graduate Scholarship. Her research program seeks to understand gendered sexuality through investigating processes and mechanisms underlying sexual arousal, desire, and behaviour. To do so, she uses state-of-the-art methodologies, often concurrently, to elucidate the components and processes necessary to activate and regulate the sexual response system. Sam's CV
