Anna Chaimani

I am a Chaire d’ Excellence at Paris Descartes University and a researcher at Methods Team (INSERM- Sorbonne Paris Cité Epidemiology and Statistics Research Centre).
I am also a collaborator of the Cochrane Comparing Multiple Interventions Methods Group and a member of the steering committee for extending the PRISMA statement into network meta-analysis.
I have worked on network meta-regression models for small-study effects, software development for network meta-analysis and development of tools for presenting and reporting network meta-analyses.
