The Methodology and Relationship/Sexual Science (MaRSS) Lab is a research group organized by Dr. John Sakaluk, a social psychologist and  Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Victoria.

The scientific mission of MaRSS Lab is to study close relationships and human sexuality using novel methodologies and advanced forms of statistical analysis. Throughout our research, we strive to adopt and accessibly promote inclusive, replicable, open, and statistically sophisticated approaches to close relationship and sexual science.
