Dr Juliana Bowles was awarded her PhD at the Technical University Braunschweig, Germany, in 2000. After working as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Edinburgh, she then took a lectureship position at the University of Birmingham in 2004. In 2007, Dr Bowles moved to the University of St Andrews in Scotland, where she is currently a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computer Science.
Dr Bowles’ research interests lie in the development of automated techniques for computer modelling, especially in healthcare. She is particularly dedicated to using computational methods to maximise safety and medication effectiveness for patients undergoing multiple treatments. She has presented her team’s findings at several international conferences, in addition to events with the general public and GPs, which has generated considerable international interest.
She leads the EU Horizon 2020 research project SERUMS (https://www.serums-h2020.org/), which deals with the security and privacy of future-generation healthcare systems, putting patients at the centre of future healthcare provision, enhancing their personal care and maximising the quality of treatment they receive. She has received funding from the Scottish Funding Council – Global Challenges Research Fund (SFC – GCRF) for exploring research collaborations and applications in Brazil.
