My name is Hilda Bastian. My interests revolve around ensuring people have easy, free access to the highest quality health information based on unbiased health research - and increasing understanding about it. On Wikipedia, I work mostly on biographies and images of African-American scientists/people in STEM, as well as other under-represented groups and issues in STEM. I also sometimes edit medical pages.
I'm an Australian who moved to Germany to work on Gesundheitsinformation.de (German version) / Informed Health Online (English version). In 2011, I moved to the USA to work on PubMed projects at the National Library of Medicine (NLM), with its National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). In 2018, I moved back to Australia, working on my doctoral dissertation and a biography.
I have a personal website and a personal blog, commenting on the science of unbiased health research with cartoons, called Statistically Funny. I blog about bias, medicine, life and uncertainties at Absolutely Maybe (blogging at Scientific American from 2013 to 2014, and from 2014 at PLOS Blogs Network), and occasionally at BMJ Blogs. I joined the editorial board of the Drug and Therapeutics Bulletin in 2020, and was appointed lead of the independent advisory group for the Cochrane review on exercise therapy and ME/CFS.
The views I express in Wikipedia are my own, not official positions of organizations with which I am, or have been, involved.
