Jennifer is an undergraduate student at UBC currently completing her BKIN. She is currently a research study coordinator at UBC Sexual Health Research for the JUNIPER project, which is examining the differences in neural correlates of sexual response between women with and without sexual interest and arousal disorder (SIAD). She hopes that findings from this project can be utilized to inform targeted and effective treatments for SIAD. Jennifer is also a research assistant at the UBC Centre for Rural Health Research on the Rural Surgical and Obstetrical Networks project. She hopes to pursue a career as a clinician-investigator in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology, and to advocate for and improve the health circumstances of marginalized women.
