I’m a doctoral student at the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, Canada, but I’m currently living in San Diego, California. I’m doing an Interdisciplinary PhD in Population Health and my studies are structured around the implementation sciences, including the study of; complex systems, knowledge management, and participatory research. My research focuses on integrating disciplinary and stakeholder knowledge, and providing research support for policy and practice change. As part of my implementation work, I’m also studying the role of organizational learning and network learning in uptake of evidence and innovations. I use a combination of qualitative and quantitative techniques in my work, and am excited for this opportunity to learn additional methods for studying complex problems and to meet other students with similar interests in complex systems.
