Suzanne de Treville

Suzanne de Treville is Emeritus Professor of Operations Management at the University of Lausanne. Professor de Treville has played a pioneering role in the application of quantitative-finance methods to valuing supply chain responsiveness. She created OpLab to facilitate the implementation of these research insights and tools for managers and policy makers. She is currently Coeditor in Chief for the Journalof Operations Management. Professor de Treville is using tools from quantitative finance to value the options that are created by supply-chain resilience or responsiveness. Such tools allow decision-makers to incorporate resilience and responsiveness in supply-chain decision-making. The cost-differential frontier she has created answers the question of how much a company should be willing to pay to design a supply chain to make it possible to postpone a decision. To support firms worldwide and demonstrate that the real options created by postponement may be surprisingly valuable, an app has been developed with the US Department of Commerce. Further decision tools support managers in creating portfolios that combine products that are more and less time sensitive, and competitive games that allow decision-makers to gain skill at making these investment decisions in a realistic and safe environment.

Sabah Mohammed

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), Dr. Mohammed is full Professor at the department of Computer Science at Lakehead University (Ontario Canada) since 2002 and core professor at the BioTechnology program at Lakehead. Dr. Mohammed efforts in establishing healthcare related programs at Lakehead are notable like the specialization Health informatics, BioTechnology and the Bioinformatics programs at Lakehead. With a research background in industry and academia, he has a strong international research reputation for his work on clinical decision support systems supporting remote areas, ubiquitous and extreme environments. Prior to his work at Lakehead University, Dr. Mohammed was the chair of three computer science departments at HCT, Philadelphia and Applied Science Universities. Dr. Mohammed is the Editor in Chief of the of the IGI Global International Journal of Extreme Automation and Connectivity in Healthcare (IJEACH), Associate Editor of the IEEE Access and the founding EiC of the Int. J. of Emerging Technologies of Web Intelligence (JETWI) . He is currently the supervisor of the Smart Health FabLab at Lakehead University. Dr. Mohammed chair the special interest group on Smart and Connected Health with the IEEE ComSoc eHealth TC. Dr. Mohammed is currently working on the development of IoT and mobility technologies that have impact on improving healthcare services at remote areas like Northwestern Ontario region.
