Research Interests: Charo Rodríguez holds the position of Associate Professor in the area of Health Services and Policy Research of the McGill Department of Family Medicine and has been with McGill since June 2003.

Charo also holds a Ph.D degree in Public Health (Health Organization option) with distinction from the University of Montreal.

Having always been interested in qualitative methodologies and being strongly influenced by critical organizational authors, Charo is currently putting together a research agenda elucidating organizational processes in health care organizations from a critical constructivist perspective, with a particular focus on organizational discourse. This research agenda, for which she was awarded Junior 1 Research Fellow by the ‘Fonds de recherche en santé du Québec’ (FRSQ) in 2004, Junior 2 Research Fellow in 2008, and Senior Research Fellow in 2012, comprises three main axes, namely information technology, identity, and inter-organizational collaboration.

Further, she is currently a member of the editorial board of the Management Information Quarterly journal, and the International Journal of Integrated Care. She has also intensively worked as a peer reviewer for both Quebec and Canadian research agencies since 2001.
