My work focuses on methods for conducting, reporting, and synthesizing intervention research. I am particularly interested in ways to increase transparency and reproducibility, and in the consequences of new data sharing requirements.

I have previously contributed to national guidelines (UK) for the identification and management of mental health problems. I am currently a member of the American Psychological Association (APA) Journal Article Reporting Standards (JARS) task force, the Consolidated Standards for Reporting Trials Extension for Social and Psychological Interventions (CONSORT-SPI) executive, and the Transparency and Openness Promotion (TOP) coordinating committee.

  • Complex interventions
  • Research transparency (reporting bias, data sharing)
  • Patient reported outcomes
  • Mental health disorders
  • Systematic reviews
