Steve has over 10 years of experience in clinical and epidemiologic research, focusing primarily on network meta-analysis and infectious diseases. Mr. Kanters holds an MSc in Statistics from the University of British Columbia, where he is currently finishing his PhD. At PHE, Steve developed research that employed a variety of types of NMAs, from conventional, to those using empirical priors, to those using repeated measures fractional polynomials and flexible survival analysis models. He has also led numerous evidence synthesis projects, including some that have brought network meta-analyses to settings where they are seldom used.
