Biography

Research

Reza's main line of interest includes the application of a social network analysis lens to inform and promote the process of knowledge translation and program implementation (https://goo.gl/EIrwfo). He is especially interested in designing network-informed and network-rewiring interventions, and studying networks as the outcome of the implementation. He has applied network analysis in various contexts including co-authorship, information seeking and influential discussions in health care settings, and partnerships among health organizations.

He is also interested in mixed methods studies, and the dialogue between quantitative and qualitative approaches, and how this dialogue can deepen our understanding of social structures and interpersonal relations.
