The Faculty of Applied Health Sciences is pleased to welcome our new dean, Lili Liu, who begins her tenure this month. She succeeds Paul Stolee from the School of Public Health and Health Systems, who served as interim dean for a year after former dean James Rush accepted the position of Vice-president, Academic, and Provost.
Liu joins us from the Department of Occupational Therapy at the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine. She is an occupational therapist and holds a Bachelor of Science, a Master of Science and a PhD, all from McGill University. Her research has focused on user adoption of technologies for rehabilitation assessments and interventions, as well as ways technologies can help older adults and family caregivers.
Her five-year term began July 1, 2019.
