Dr. Mohammed is full Professor at the department of Computer Science at Lakehead University (Ontario Canada) since 2002. He is currently the Acting Chair of the department. He is also a Professional Engineer of Ontario (PEng), Information Processing Professional with CIPS and Senior Member of IEEE. Dr. Sabah Mohammed research interest is in intelligent systems that have to operate in large, nondeterministic, cooperative, highly connected, survivable, adaptive or partially known domains. His continuous research is inspired by his PhD work back in 1981 from Brunel University (UK) on the employment of the Brain Activity Structures for decision making (planning and learning) that enable processes (e.g. agents, mobile objects) and collaborative processes to act intelligently in their environments to timely achieve the required goals. Having trained in medicine with a computer science PhD in Artificial Intelligence (AI), his research is focused on Smart, Translational, Generative and Connected Health. Prior to his work at Lakehead University, Dr. Mohammed was the chair of three computer science departments at HCT, Philadelphia and Applied Science University. He is the founder and Editor-In-Chief of two journals (Emerging Technology of Web Intelligence (JETWI)-2008-2012 and the International Journal of Extreme Automation and Connectivity in Healthcare (IJEACH)-2018-2021). Currently he is the chair of the special interest research group on Smart and Connected Health with the IEEE ComSoc eHealth TC. Dr. Mohammed active research is on connected healthcare through translational medicine is funded by both NSERC and MITACS.
