Dr. Guang Ying Mo received her PhD in Sociology from the University of Toronto in 2015. Using a social network approach, her research examines the mechanism of collaboration across knowledge-based boundaries and its impact on the creation of innovation. Dr. Mo also investigates how organizational context and policy changes can be used to better support multidisciplinary collaboration and innovation.
Working with Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN), Centre for Aging & Brain Health Innovation, Baycrest Health Sciences, and AGE-WELL NCE, Dr. Mo is currently looking at how to use technology to provide care to older adults with dementia and their caregivers living at home. The findings will be used to inform the development of new dementia care models at OTN and Baycrest.
