Success in designing and conducting implementation studies requires experience, interest and a commitment to working in a transdisciplinary manner, spanning multiple academic disciplines as well as research, policy and practice boundaries. Please briefly describe (300 word maximum) your experience (or plans for) productive, effective transdisciplinary work and how this fits with your goals for conducting D&I research in the future.
