Professor, Université du Québec à Montréal (UQÀM)

My research program examines adolescent and emerging adults’ psychosexual development features. Specifically, my ongoing SSHRC research projects focus on the transition into sexual activity (including among women who have sex with women), on desynchronization of the sexual transition timing (i.e. early versus late onset, virginity in adulthood), on the social and media representations of adults’ sexual inexperience, and on sexlessness and involuntary incelibacy (I.e. Incels, Femcels) in emerging adulthood.
