    I am an adjunct Lecturer in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics and an Academic Coordinator II in Global Health Sciences. I have strong expertise in systematic review and research synthesis methods. I managed the Cochrane Collaboration's Review Group on HIV/AIDS for over a decade. I am a member of the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) Working Group and have many years experience in using GRADE methodology to assess the quality (certainty) of evidence for intervention outcomes and diagnostic test accuracy. I have led and provided methodologic oversight on numerous systematic review projects commissioned to UCSF in HIV/AIDS guideline development work for the World Health Organization (WHO). I have served several times as a consultant to WHO guideline development teams and have presented review findings to WHO's global consensus panels. I also develop curricula and provide teaching and mentoring in systematic review and GRADE methodologies, as well as in scientific writing and other areas.
