Adrian Barnett is a professor of statistics who has worked for over 27 years in health and medical research. He is passionate about using the best available evidence in national health and science policy. He is particularly interested in how we generate high quality scientific evidence that is of most value to the public and politicians, and how this evidence gets translated into policy and practice. He has researched how research is funded, and has worked with funding agencies in Australia and overseas to improve their processes. He has also researched how scientists write and report their research, with the aim of increasing the value of the enormous time and effort that goes into research.
