Juliana de Oliveira Costa is a Research Fellow in the Medicines Policy Research Unit at the Centre for Big Data Research in Health. She is a pharmacoepidemiologist with over eight years’ experience working with large administrative data and electronic health records to improve the use of medicines in populations.


Juliana is a pharmacist by training with a background in public health and health technology assessment. She is interested in developing studies in the real-world setting, and some of her current and past projects include: examining quality of care among people undergoing revascularisation procedures in NSW public hospitals, rates of low-value care services in NSW public hospitals, patterns of antidepressant use and trajectories of adherence to HIV regimens in Australia; performing comparative effectiveness studies between first-line regimens for HIV treatment; evaluating costs and benefits of HIV treatment, immunosuppressants for kidney transplantation, antipsychotics, and biological medicines for rheumatic diseases in the Brazilian context.

My teaching interests combine the areas of pharmacoepidemiology, public health and health economics to provide the population with medicines and other health interventions that are effective, safe and affordable.

I currently teach in HDAT9100 - Context of Health Data Science (Chapter instructor, 2020 - present). I previously taught Pharmacoepidemiology, Community Pharmacy and Professional Practice (UFMG).
