St Andrews HCI Research Group

Dr Areti Manataki is a Lecturer in Computer Science at the University of St Andrews. In her research, she employs artificial intelligence methods to improve the delivery of healthcare services. Her focus is on data-driven optimisation of patient flow and improvement of care pathways for patients with long-term conditions. This includes mining surgical patient flow patterns with the use of machine learning, analysing electronic health record workflow with the use of process mining, and modelling HIV care pathways with the use of formal methods. Areti has recently developed interests in advanced data visualisation, in particular in the healthcare domain. Given the poor health literacy of the general population and the complexity of medical data, Areti thinks that there is a great opportunity for dataviz to help patients, populations and clinicians to better understand and ultimately improve their health and care. Areti has extensive experience in leading a range of innovative health data science and computing courses, teaching undergraduate, postgraduate and professional audiences how to capitalise on the power of data to enhance human health. This includes the hugely successful Code Yourself! and ¡A Programar! courses on Coursera, which have attracted over 500,000 learners worldwide. Prior to joining the University of St Andrews, Areti worked as a Teaching and Research Fellow and as a Senior Researcher at the University of Edinburgh, where she also obtained her PhD.
