Nina is a third-year PhD student in Clinical Psychology. She completed her undergraduate (B.Sc. Honours, Psychology), and graduate (M.Sc., Clinical Psychology) degrees at Queen's University. Before Nina joined the EMBody Lab, their Master's thesis examined how differences in emotional reactions to sexual cues affect women's experiences of sexual desire.
In the EMBody Lab, Nina is researching the embodied experience of gender, and the impact of gender-related minority stress on stress physiology and mental health outcomes. Their PhD work is funded by a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). Nina's other interests include data visualization, knowledge translation, and representation of queer/trans experiences in psychology. When not working, Nina enjoys taking care of their plants, playing with new puppy Juno, making ceramics, and canoe tripping.
