Personal profile


Dr Tari Turner is a Senior Research Fellow at Cochrane Australia. Tari’s passion is supporting evidence-based decision-making to ensure the best possible outcomes, particularly for women and children in low resource settings. She enjoys designing, finding, synthesising and communicating research, and she loves seeing research actually make a difference.

Tari is Co-Editor in Chief of Health Research Policy and Systems, a BMC journal published in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), and a member of the Scientific and Technical Advisory Group to the WHO Department of Reproductive Health and Research.

For the last few years, Tari has worked on Project Transform, a three-year flagship health evidence project, leading work on living systematic reviews, living guidelines and the development of taskexchange.cochrane.org.

Tari’s previous work at the Centre included the SEA-URCHIN Project, which investigated whether implementation of research evidence can improve prevention and treatment of neonatal infection in hospitals in South East Asia; and CIPHER, a project that is exploring how to support use of research by policymakers. Tari previously worked at World Vision Australia where she was Senior Health Advisor.

Tari holds a Doctor of Philosophy from Monash University, a Master of Business from Swinburne University, a Post Graduate Certificate in Biostatistics from the University of Melbourne and a Bachelor of Biomedical Science from Monash University.
