Trans Perspectives Research Lab

Trans Perspectives Research Lab

Welcome to the Trans Perspectives Research Lab. Our research team, led by Dr. Ashley Austin, is committed to engaging in transgender affirmative research which centers the voices and experiences of trans and gender-diverse people. Our lab is focused on developing knowledge that has the potential to improve the well-being transgender and gender diverse individuals across the life span. For us, this includes a focus on research which: advances knowledge and understanding of experiences of gender dysphoria, addresses understudied aspects of the trans experience across the life span, and explores contemporary transgender issues through a trauma responsive lens.
