Matthew Page

Matthew Page is a Research Fellow in the research methodology division of the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Monash University. 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). He was a visiting postdoctoral fellow at the University of Bristol, UK, from 2015-2017. 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 is a co-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. He is a co-convenor of the Cochrane Bias Methods Group, and member of the editorial board for the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology and PLoS Medicine.
