Panelist Details

Adriana Radulovici, PhD

Adriana is the Executive Secretary of GEO BON, an international network working to advance biodiversity science and policy. Her research is largely focused on detecting overlooked biodiversity with the help of DNA technologies. Throughout her career she developed a deep interest in knowledge mobilization and in using new tools such as digital storytelling to bring scientific knowledge closer to the general public in an effort to increase the understanding around sustainable development.

Aly Bailey, PhD, she/her

Aly is a Mitacs postdoc at McMaster University working in the Department of Health, Aging, & Society with an Adjunct appointment at ReVision Centre, University of Guelph. Her research program interrogates current practices of accessibility and inclusion within fitness, recreation, and leisure spaces. Her community-based research involves centring the experiences of people who are racialized, queer, trans, non-binary, gender non-conforming, and disabled in the re-imaging of what “fitness” is to reclaim movement-based practices in difference affirming ways using multimedia arts-based methods as a key knowledge mobilization strategy.

Susan Brown, MSc, she/her

Susan is the Director of Research Coordination and Research-Practice Integration at the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging (RIA). Susan works with older adults, formal/informal care partners and researchers to look for answers to questions that are meaningful for individuals, relevant to the senior living sector, have high potential to impact practice and/or policy, and will contribute to the scientific community. She is passionate about using pragmatic approaches to discover the innovation that lies at the intersection of research, education, practice and lived experience, and to explore how it can be used to enhance quality of life and quality of care for older adults.
