Dr Lesley Uttley is Senior Research Fellow at the University of Sheffield, United Kingdom, working in the field of meta-meta-meta research methodology. Following an educational background in Psychology and 10+ years working as a systematic reviewer, Lesley was awarded a fellowship to investigate the reliability and validity of published systematic reviews by the UK Medical Research Council in 2019.
