    Vitae Summary, Major Professional Realizations & Professional Profile Overview:


                                                                     ****_Summary_****

    Experience:

    Over 12 years of experience as software developer, extracurricular teacher for kids, trainer of computer software for adults, University lecturer and mentor, researcher scientist at Canadian research labs and projects manager of public-private partnership projects in defence & aerospace industry. Mehdi Najjar is a computer engineer who also holds a Master degree in Artificial Intelligence and a Ph.D. degree in Cognitive Informatics, both from the University of Sherbrooke (Canada). He has held various positions (1) in software development, as programmer, (2) in education and training, as (a) extracurricular teacher of computer courses for kids, (b) as a trainer of computer software for adults (vocational training) and (c) as a university lecturer and mentor at both undergraduate and graduate levels; (3) in scientific research, as a researcher scientist and (4) in projects management/supervision, as scientific/technical authority for public-private partnership projects.


                                                      ****_Major Professional Realizations_****
    After getting an engineer degree in Computer Engineering (and have worked as software developper for almost a year), a Master degree in Artificial Intelligence, and after finishing my PhD thesis – where I have proposed a novel cognitive computational knowledge representation approach which is inspired by psychological theories that explain the human cognitive activity in terms of memory subsystems and their processes (see reference 1) –, I have worked (in 2007) as a research scientist for the EMAT Laboratory (Canada), specialized in ambient intelligence Research and Development (R&D) and managed by Pr. Hamam, Canada research chair holder in intelligent mobile systems. I have developed a modular generic architecture for intelligent assistance to cognitively impaired people (see reference 2). In 2008, I have worked as a research scientist for the Interdisciplinary Research Center on Emerging Technologies (Canada), subsidiary of Bell Laboratories Corporation, specialized in human-computer interactions R&D. I have designed and implemented a computational model for deciphering the user cognitive intentions via Eye-Tracking devices and probabilistic algorithms (see reference 3). I have also worked for more than five years (2003-2008) as a lecturer at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Sherbrooke (Canada) and I have also been the advisor/mentor of graduate and undergraduate students. I am actually (since 2009) a research scientist at the Operational Space Medicine division of the Canadian Space Agency where I am working on computational neurocognitive assessment of astronauts’ performance. In early 2009, I was asked to perform the data analysis and interpretation of astronauts and cosmonauts performance results obtained via an experimental simulator (named SMP). Developed by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), SMP aimed to study the robotic performance of the Canadarm2 operators in order to provide more insight into the individual on-orbit robotic skills degradation and recovery and, ultimately, recommendations and guidelines for an on-board training simulator that would allow astronauts measure, maintain and even improve their skills in space. The SMP project, started in 2000, comprised an experimental study that took place on-board the International Space Station during more than four years (2003-2007) with cosmonauts and astronauts tested in pre-flight, in-flight and post-flight conditions. Data analysis and interpretation (my duties) led to major conclusions and findings (see reference 4). These lessons learned have improved CSA expertise for the development of the next generation of performance assessment tools (named PRET). In late 2009, I was designated to develop PRET (as the project investigator and the technical/scientific authority). In mid 2011, The CSA’s Performance Readiness Evaluation Tool (PRET) was functional, fully tested and ready to use under operational contexts (see reference 5). In late 2012, PRET will be carried on-board Soyouz spacecraft and installed on-board the Russian segment of the International Space Station. The tool will be used in an experimental study that aims to detect variation of the neurocognitive readiness prior to perform critical tasks by astronauts and cosmonauts during long-duration space mission.
