Years ago, Matthew Page was a student in the School of Psychological Science at La Trobe University (in Melbourne), working with Fiona Fidler and me. He somehow (!) became interested in research methods and practices, especially as related to meta-analysis. He moved to Cochrane Australia, which is based at Monash University, also in Melbourne.
After completing a PhD there he had a post-doc with Julian Higgins, of Cochrane and meta-analysis fame, in Bristol, U.K.. Then he returned to Cochrane Australia, where he is now a research fellow.
It was wonderful to hear, a day or two ago, this announcement:
“Cochrane Australia Research Fellow and Co-Convenor of the Cochrane Bias Methods Group Matthew Page recently took out this year’s Bill Silverman Prize, which recognises and celebrates the role of constructive criticism of Cochrane and its work.”
