Lianping Ti, PhD, is a Research Scientist and Health Administrative Data Lead for the BC Centre on Substance Use. She is also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine and Associate Faculty in the School of Population and Public Health at the University of British Columbia. Her research largely focuses on understanding the intersections between substance use, infectious diseases, and the delivery and efficacy of healthcare systems. Dr. Ti’s research utilizes linked administrative datasets, coupled with statistical and artificial intelligence methodologies to understand access and utilization of health services, as well as infectious disease progression and treatment outcomes among people who use illicit drugs. An epidemiologist by training, she leads a project of a province-wide, population-level linked administrative cohort that aims to evaluate naturally occurring policies and interventions to optimize health systems for people living with substance use disorders. She also has international research experience working on a serial cross-sectional mixed-methods study to explore experiences with access to health and harm reduction services among people who inject drugs in Bangkok, Thailand. Her work is supported by a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Scholar Award.
