Research interests

Lori Ross' research program focuses on two main areas: (1) mental health during pregnancy and the postpartum period, particularly among marginalized populations; and (2) mental health for GLBTTIQ people. Much of her current research crosses these two areas, and is focused on mental health for GLBTTIQ parents. She is currently conducting a SSHRC-funded study on GLBTTIQ adoption in Ontario, and a community-based project on the context of mental health for bisexual people.
