Qualifications and experience
A medical doctor with extensive experience as editor. After working as a family doctor for some years, including a year in Mozambique as a district doctor, I moved into research and publishing. I started working in Cochrane, where I initially coordinated the Lung Cancer Group, providing support to authors and leading the editorial base, and I was responsible for developing clinical practice guidelines and systematic reviews. Now, I lead the team in charge of producing Cochrane Clinical Answers, an online tool to inform decision making.
