Biography

Bianca Albers holds a PhD from the University of Melbourne, Australia. In her research, she focuses on the usability and role of implementation strategies and frameworks as tools for guiding and structuring implementation practice and on strategies for building the capacity within health organisations and services to develop, implement and sustain research-supported interventions. Systematic knowledge synthesis and qualitative methods are central tools in this work.

With a background in political science, Bianca also maintains a deep interest for health systems research and the interface between implementation science and policy implementation.

Prior to joining academia, Bianca worked in multiple government and intermediary organisations in Europe and Australia with a focus on supporting others in their work to enhance the use of evidence in health and human services and to establish evidence-based practice and policy.

Bianca is a co-founder and past chair of the European Implementation Collaborative (EIC) and a founding member of the Society for Implementation Research Collaboration (SIRC).
