Suzanne Ii

BA, MA, MSc, PhD

Postdoctoral Scientist

I am a mixed methods researcher with interests in health care policies, public health, social care and primary care. Within CASMI, I am conducting postdoctoral interdisciplinary research activities pertaining to innovation adoption in health care. I am currently one of the co-leads on the Diabetes Innovation Project.

Originally a Physical Anthropologist, I have a degree in Anthropology (Cum Laude) from California State University, Fresno, a Master's degree in East Asian Studies from Stanford University, a Master's degree in Visual Anthropology from the University of Oxford and a PhD in Addictions Research from King's College London. My PhD work explored the dietary behaviours of people receiving opioid substitution treatment using mixed research methods. I also conducted drug and nutrition policy research to identify the gaps in service delivery to the implementation of integrated social care services for vulnerable populations.

Outside of CASMI, I enjoy playing the tsugaru shamisen (a traditional Japanese musical instrument), indulging in gastronomic excursions, travelling to countries far and wide, hiking, gaming and writing poetry.
