Bio/Research

Serge Desmarais received his BA, MA and PhD in social psychology from the University of Waterloo. He joined the University of Guelph in 1995 following earlier teaching positions at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, and Saint Mary’s University in Halifax. He is a Professor in the department of Psychology and the former Associate Dean in the College of Social and Human Applied Sciences. Desmarais also served as Acting Chair of his department in 2005 and the Acting Dean of CSAHS in 2007.

Between 2002 and 2007, Desmarais was the recipient of a Canada Research Chair in Applied Social Psychology. His research expertise and interests are varied but are broadly associated with two general themes: 1) the changes and impact of gender norms and, 2) issues of justice and personal entitlement. These two research themes often intersect, as is the case in studies of gender differences in pay entitlement and his research on gender and sexuality. His most recent research examines the social and relational consequences of social media, especially Facebook. He is the author of numerous scholarly papers and chapters, the co-author of two introductory psychology textbooks, the recipient of two University teaching awards and is also the former associate editor of Canadian Psychology.
