RESUME

Jose M. Juarez, PhD, is Associate Professor at UMU. He has been with the Artificial Intelligence and Knowledge Engineering (AIKE) group since 2004, holding a variety of research staff positions. He has been visiting PhD student at UNIPO and UNIVR during 2005 and 2006. He joined the Department of Neuroscience of the UAL in 2007 (postdoc). Since 2008 he is faculty member at the Department of Information and Communication Engineering, UMU. He became Vice-dean of the Faculty of Computer Science (2014-2017) where he also coordinated the master studies and doctoral training programs.

Dr. Juarez’s research interests are Artificial Intelligence in general and in its uses in healthcare. In particular, he is focused on knowledge-based systems, temporal and case-based reasoning and clinical decision support systems.

Jose M. Juarez is board member of the European Society of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIME). He is also a Fellow of the Spanish Society of Artificial Intelligence (AEPIA) and the Spanish Society of Health Informatics (SEIS).
