Staff Profile

Amanda Wanner

Research Fellow (Information Specialist)

Kath Maguire

I am an Information Specialist providing support across the full spectrum of activities conducted by the Plymouth PenCLAHRC team as well as Exeter-based projects. I also work alongside the Evidence Synthesis team to support research identification and prioritisation and contribute to methodological research.

I have expertise in literature search methods to support syntheses of research evidence. Specifically, in my role I:

  • Plan and undertake scoping searches for potential systematic reviews or research grant bids.
  • Liaise with PenCLAHRC researchers (and other project partners) about search strategy requirements for primary and secondary research.
  • Work with members of the Evidence Synthesis team members of the clinical community to develop and delivery Priority Briefings to assist prioritization of PenCLAHRC questions.
  • Design and undertake complex systematic literature searches to support systematic reviews as well as writing or reviewing the search methods of research papers.
  • Work with the diagnostics team on developing and leading pragmatic literature searches.
  • Contribute towards original research on information specialist methods.
