About: Originally from Portugal, Dr. Inês Tavares joined the SWell Lab as a postdoctoral fellow following completion of her Ph.D. in Psychology at the University of Porto. Her research integrates laboratory and survey-based methodologies, as well as individual and dyadic approaches to examine biopsychosocial predictors of sexual well-being in clinical and community populations. She is the recipient of a SSHRC Banting Postdoctoral fellowship to work with Dr. Samantha Dawson and Dr. Natalie Rosen (Dalhousie University).  During her postdoctoral program, Inês will be developing and testing an online and evidence-based program focused on the prevention of sexual difficulties in couples transitioning to parenthood. Ultimately, her research interests serve the goal of informing the development of better treatment options for the sexual health and well-being of individuals and couples.
