Serena Corsini-Munt, PhD

Dr. Serena Corsini-Munt is a former postdoctoral fellow in the Couples and Sexual Heath (CaSH) Lab and is now an Assistant Professor at the University of Ottawa’s Psychology Department.

Her research focuses on the application of motivation theory to sexual desire, couples’ definitions of sexual desire, and investigating the impact of sexual desire problems on couples. Her dissertation research addressed the development and testing of a novel psychological intervention for couples living with genito-pelvic pain (experiencing pain during sex). Serena completed her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at the Université de Montréal.

During her fellowship with us, Serena extended her work in the area of sexual desire to better understand its role in sexual and relational well-being for couples.
