Anna Chaimani

I am a Senior Research Fellow (under a Université Sorbonne Paris Cité Chaire d’Excellence Fellowship) at the METHODS Team.
I am also a co-convenor of the Cochrane Statistical Methods Group and the Cochrane Comparing Multiple Interventions Methods Group.
My research focuses on development of methods for network meta-analysis, such as methods for handling missing outcome data, models addressing small-study effects and bias, graphical tools for presenting results and software development.

Software : Stata software for pairwise and network meta-analysis
