James Bowness

BSc (Hons), MB & BChir (Cantab), MRCS, FRCA


DPhil Student & Consultant Anaesthetist

James moved to the OxSTaR in October 2020, to undertake a DPhil supervised by Associate Professor Helen Higham (NDCN) and Professor Alison Noble (IBME).  He is a Consultant Anaesthetist, at the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board in South Wales, and is a Senior Medical Advisor for Intelligent Ultrasound, a company which produces artificial intelligence (AI) devices for medical ultrasound.

His work with Intelligent Ultrasound focuses on the evaluation of assistive artificial intelligence devices.  Part of this work, on the identification of anatomical structures in ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia, contributes to his DPhil.

He completed his undergraduate training at the University of St Andrews (BSc (Hons), Medical Sciences) and Magdalene College, University of Cambridge (MB BChir, Clinical Medicine).  After a brief time in surgery, he crossed the blood-brain barrier to anaesthetics and trained as an Academic Clinical Lecturer in the University of Dundee/East of Scotland Deanery.  He finished training in August 2020 and has since worked as a consultant and began his DPhil.
