Dr Ioanna Chouvarda studied electrical engineering at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (A.U.Th.), Greece, and received the Ph.D. degree in Medical Informatics in 2001. Her Ph.D. thesis was primarily focused on analysis of cardiac signals by means of time-frequency methods, entitled: “Time-Cardiac System Time-Frequency Analysis in microscopic and macroscopic level”.
Dr Ioanna Chouvarda is Researcher at CERTH (Informatics for Big BioData Lab) and Lecturer in Medical Informatics, Medical School, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. She has also served as Adjunct Associate Professor at the Technological Institute of Thessaloniki.
She has been teaching in undergraduate and graduate courses for more than 10 years, mainly in the graduate interdepartmental program in Medical Informatics and the graduate program of Medical Research Methodology of AUTH, including also joint educational activities and seminars between CERTH and AUTH.
She has been involved in biomedical informatics research for more than 18 years. She has participated in R&D (including technical management) in a series of successful EU research projects (CHS, PANACEA, SENSATION, HEARTCYCLE, WELCOME, ACT, … ), in both AUTH and CERTH, and has been actively involved in the attraction of funds for biomedical research. She has also received 1 university grant as PI regarding ICU data analysis, and is member of the committee of EU Cost Action Enject for connected health.
Her main areas of interest include: analysis of biodata and modelling of physiological processes; management of biomedical information; personalised health. Her current research at CERTH/INAB involves a) analysis of high throughput sequencing immunogenetic data, b) data mining and pattern analysis in bioinformatics, c) big biodata management, integration, analytics analytics. She has been long active in biosignal analysis and machine learning techniques in biomedical informatics.
She is reviewer in numerous journals and conferences, and Associate Editor in Elsevier-CMPB Journal. Dr. Ioanna Chouvarda is Member of the IEEE (EMBS, SigProc, SSIT, Computer and WIE) and the Technical Chamber of Greece.
