Biography

Juliana received her Master of Public Health (2007) and her Doctor of Public Health (2011) degrees from the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. As a Research Specialist at the University of Arizona, she conducted secondary data analysis using the Tucson Epidemiological Study of Airway Obstructive Disease; a population-based prospective cohort study. She used multilevel modelling to assess the long-term effects of exposure to parental smoking in children followed to adulthood.

After finishing her doctorate degree, she worked with the US National Park Service examining patterns of morbidity and mortality, using a mixed methods approach, in Sequoia and Kings National Parks. She then worked as a consultant with World Health Organization as part of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative seeking to improve data management and surveillance practices.

Juliana joined the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit in February 2015 as a Research Associate. She is part of the Complexity in Health Improvement Programme and is a member of the HelpMeDoIt! trial team leading various qualitative components of the study. The HelpMeDoit! study seeks to harness social support to help people lose weight using new technologies.

Juliana has worked in the US, Zambia, Ethiopia, the Philippines, and the UK and is interested in mixed methods research, secondary data analysis, and designing and evaluating complex health interventions.
