Activities / Findings

I am interested in using systematic review methodology to discover novel mechanisms of carcinogenesis. I also have an interest in performing systematic reviews of interventions and tests (both diagnostic and prognostic) within the cancer field.

I am also interested in sources of bias in non-randomized studies of interventions, particularly in quasi-experimental studies.


I am part of the team that teaches fourth year medical students about systematic reviews. 

I teach on the short course Introduction to Systematic Reviews and Meta-analysis.
