Matthew Page

Position: Cochrane Australia

Matthew Page is a Senior Research Fellow in the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine at Monash University, funded by an ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award. He leads a programme of research on methods for evidence synthesis, which builds on the research undertaken during his PhD (2011-2015) and NHMRC Early Career Fellowship (2015-2019). Matthew’s research interests span many areas of evidence synthesis, including examination of the transparency and reproducibility of systematic reviews; methods to address reporting biases (e.g. publication bias, selective reporting bias); tools to assess risk of bias in randomized trials and non-randomized studies of interventions; and examination of selective inclusion of results in meta-analyses. He is leading the 2020 update of the PRISMA reporting guideline for systematic reviews and meta-analyses, and was an associate editor for the 2019 edition of the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions. He frequently collaborates with clinicians on systematic reviews of interventions for a range of conditions, which often informs his research agenda.
