She has taught numerous courses and workshops internationally on methods for systematic review, clinical trial, and epidemiology, including the Risk of Bias 2 tool and network meta-analysis, two foci that require robust implementation across Cochrane.

Tianjing’s research interests span the scope of more than half of the Cochrane Methods Groups, including network meta-analysis, adverse events, priority setting, bias, patient-reported outcomes, qualitative research, GRADE, rapid reviews, information retrieval, and technology, publishing papers, book chapters, and other pieces on all these topics.
