Evidence synthesis team lead and senior epidemiologist

Researcher specialized in the application of evidence synthesis methodologies to priority infectious disease public health issues. Methods expertise includes systematic reviews, scoping reviews, meta-analysis, rapid reviews, literature surveillance, decision modelling, and knowledge translation for a range of audiences.

Current research and/or projects

Evidence synthesis is fundamental to public health decision-making.  My research focuses on the application of a variety of synthesis methods to support the evidence needs on priority public health issues in Canada. 

While synthesis methods can be applied to any topic, my expertise is in infectious diseases including COVID-19 and a wide range of food safety, vectorborne and zoonotic diseases.

Keystone methods:

Scoping reviews and evidence maps are used to describe the evidence underpinning a broad topic area and provides information on where there is research and where knowledge gaps exist.

Systematic reviews and rapid reviews identify, appraise and synthesize evidence on a focused topic/question, for example whether an intervention is effective, and describes the confidence in that evidence.

Meta-analysis is a statistical technique that combines quantitative information from multiple studies identified in a systematic review to create a single, more precise, summary measure of effect. It can be used to compare effective interventions (network meta-analysis), or investigate why studies do not agree (meta-regression).

New methods that have been developed and employed during a public health event include literature surveillance and living evidence summaries geared towards the continuous identification and summarization of evidence to support decision-making on a rapidly changing situation.

When these methods are applied on relevant public health issues the products can be used to help decision makers understand the available evidence and how reliable it is and where knowledge gaps exist. The outputs of knowledge synthesis can be used directly in evidence-based decision making or may be used as evidence-based inputs to risk assessments and other decision-analysis models.
