His research interests include:

Doctors make medical interventions with the belief that their treatment methods such as medications are effective but they are sometimes not. Systematic reviews are credible sources that provide evidence for effective treatment methods and the Cochrane Library is the core of systematic reviews.

The systematic reviews have changed the view of evaluating all medical research. By studying evidence-based medicine and working on Cochrane Library, I realized how important it is to look at medical research and evaluate research papers, and to conduct a fair evaluation of medicine.
