I am a Filipina Scholar, Registered Nurse, and health informatician whose program of research focuses on health informatics, nursing, and health equity, underpinned by critical theory and implementation science. A key aim in my program of work is to ensure meaningful inclusion of non-dominant groups in the conceptualization, design, development, and implementation of health technologies in health systems. My most recent work examines the role of nursing data in shaping opportunities to embed health equity in the development of machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence for health systems.
I have expertise in mixed methods, participatory, and co-production approaches and software design/development methods. I have experience with various aspects of health information technology in health systems and nursing, including nursing informatics competencies, usability research, user-centered design and development, rapid and exploratory prototyping, and technology adoption and usage.
I obtained my BScN from McGill University (2007), and MSN (2010) and PhD (2021) from UBC. Prior to joining UBCO, I was a Health Service Improvement Research Fellow at the University of the West of England (2016), an Associate Research Fellow in Implementation Science at the University of Exeter Medical School (2016-19), and an Assistant Professor at Ryerson University in Toronto, ON (2019-21).
