    Dr Matt-Mouley Bouamrane joined General Practice and Primary Care in February 2010 as a CSO Research Fellow in Health Informatics and the Health Services Research, working with Professor Frances Mair on the development of information systems for the integration across primary and secondary care in Scotland of the preoperative assessment of patients prior to surgery.

    He graduated as a Bachelor of Electronic Engineering at the Université de Paris-XI, Orsay, followed by a postgraduate diploma in computer engineering (2003) and a PhD in computer science (2006) at the University of Dublin, Trinity College, where he was a member of the Artificial Intelligence Group (AIG). His doctoral research consisted of developing information access and retrieval methods and systems for remote web-based meetings in collaboration with Dr Saturnino Luz.

    From 2007 until 2010, Dr Bouamrane was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Manchester within the bio-informatics group of Professor Alan Rector in a knowledge transfer project, working on the development of a knowledge-based preoperative decision support system in partnership with a Scottish SME, Informatics-CIS.
