Rhiannon Owen is a Research Associate in Evidence Synthesis at the University of Leicester. Rhiannon’s research interests include meta-analysis and network meta-analysis, Bayesian methods in healthcare evaluation, synthesis of diagnostic test accuracy data, and synthesis of data from multiple outcomes to inform healthcare policy and decision making. Rhiannon’s research focuses on the methodological development and application of evidence synthesis methods in a health technology assessment setting. Her recent publications have presented methodology for incorporating dose-response and class effects in network meta-analysis, borrowing strength between treatments of the same class to increase precision for decision making. Rhiannon was awarded a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Doctoral Research Fellowship which included a comprehensive systematic literature review, and development and application of data synthesis methods for extensive treatment networks. Rhiannon also runs a number of workshops in evidence synthesis, including synthesis of clinical effectiveness data and diagnostic test accuracy, for postgraduates and professionals.
