Dr. Radmila Juric is a Principal Lecturer at the Department of Information Systems, School of informatics, University of Westminster, London, United Kingdom. She obtained her first degree, Dipl. Ing. (MEng) in Mathematics from the Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Zagreb, Croatia; MSc in Information Systems and Databases from Birkbeck College, University of London and PhD in Computing from Brunel University, West London, UK. She worked in the computing industry as a software engineer until 1989 when she joined The South Bank University Business School in London as lecturer in Business Information Systems. Dr Juric is currently leading postgraduate courses in Information Systems at University of Westminster; she is a member of the academic standards group and leader of the Software Interoperability research group. She is also a program committee member of a few international conferences and a member of the specialist group on Healthcare Informatics at the British Computer Society.
Dr. Juric’s major research interest is the field of Software Interoperability, with emphasis on software engineering disciplines, including interoperability frameworks, component based architectures and service technologies, in solving the problem of heterogeneities of hardware/software platforms and software applications across problem domains. Her research also includes Medical Informatics and Ubiquitous Computing in Healthcare systems, particularly for the UK National Health Service. She has worked on building ontologies for sharing information and knowledge in pervasive and intelligent healthcare systems and in creating generic software solutions for automating marketing authorisations in the pharmaceutical industry across regulatory authorities. Dr Juric is interested in modelling behaviour of ambient intelligent systems; security models in medical databases and service oriented solutions for context aware software applications in ambient assisted living. Dr Juric is also interested in Commercial-off-the-Shelf and Open Source Software products and systems, the development, marketing and selection of COTS/OSS components and their impact on software development, software architectures and software interoperability in general.
