Matthew Page is a Research Fellow funded by an Australian NHMRC Early Career Fellowship (2015-2019), and is affiliated with the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Monash University. He was awarded a PhD in epidemiology from Monash University in 2015, and was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Bristol, UK, from 2015-2017.
Matthew's main focus is on meta-research; that is, he performs research on ways to improve the value of biomedical research. He is currently developing and evaluating new methods to address reporting biases and design biases in studies included in systematic reviews. He is also developing new methods to improve the transparency of systematic reviews. He frequently collaborates on clinical epidemiology studies (e.g. systematic reviews and randomized trials of interventions), as this work often informs his agenda of developing methodology.
Matthew's research has been published in PLoS Medicine, the BMJ, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, and the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology. He is a Co-Convenor of the Cochrane Bias Methods Group. He is a member of the editorial board for PLoS Medicine, an associate editor for Systematic Reviews, and an associate scientific editor for the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions.
Matthew welcomes inquiries from prospective Honours, Masters and PhD students interested in work in meta-research, bias and research integrity, and systematic review methodology.
