Professor Moura Quayle’s interests lie in rethinking, refining and rebuilding collaborative spaces at the intersections of academic, government, business and civil society. Her recent focus has been the Sauder d.studio, a research and teaching studio that helps students and organizations learn to use design processes and tools to co-create innovative solutions to complex problems.

Her community work includes serving as Vice-Chair of Genome Canada and board member of the Vancouver Economic Commission. She is the UBC point person for Leading Cities, an international research partnership between mid-size cities and their universities, and is recognized as a woman of distinction by YWCA, a distinguished alumna of UC Berkeley, and an honorary doctor of Science from University of Guelph.
