Biography

Dr. Linda Li is Professor and Harold Robinson / Arthritis Society Chair in Arthritic Diseases at the Department of Physical Therapy, and Senior Scientist at the Arthritis Research Centre of Canada. She also holds a Canada Research Chair in Patient-oriented Knowledge Translation. She earned a PhD in Clinical Epidemiology at the University of Toronto, and then completed a CIHR-funded post-doctoral fellowship in clinical epidemiology/knowledge translation at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute.

As a health services researcher, Linda’s research focuses in two areas: 1) understanding the help-seeking experience in people with early inflammatory arthritis, and 2) evaluating models of arthritis care. Her methodological skills include clinical epidemiology and mixed-methods design. She also collaborates with digital media experts to develop and evaluate online tools, such as decision aids for promoting shared-decision making and interactive programs for coaching people to be physically active. Her research is currently funded by CIHR, Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research, and The Arthritis Society.
