My research focuses on the statistical modelling for evidence synthesis and the methodology of systematic reviews. I am particularly interested in publication bias issues, the impact of missing outcome data and network meta-analysis. Several of my methodological developments have been applied to answer clinical questions in mental health.

I am the head of the Evidence Synthesis Methods Research Group.
