Sari van Anders: I'm Sari van Anders, and I'm representing Queen's University. My research looks at how social behaviours related to intimacy, sexuality and also gender inequity affect our bodies. So, for example, changing testosterone. I'm also interested in gender and sexual diversity. So making sense of ways that people experience genders and diverse sexualities, and trying to think of ways that scientists can address that in ways that don't marginalize already marginalized groups. And, finally, my research also looks at what sexuality is, how different aspects of sexuality affect us, how our social experiences affect our sexualities.
