JAYFUS TUCKER DOSWELL, PH.D
Dr. Doswell earned a Bachelor of Arts (BA) from Oberlin College with degrees in Cognitive Neuro-Psychology and Computer Science; a Masters degree in Systems and Computer Science from Howard University; and a Ph.D. degree in Information Technology from George Mason University. His Dissertation, defended in 2005, created the world’s first culturally adaptive artificial intelligent (AI) virtual instructor software architecture to deliver personalize instruction to underserved populations in mixed reality (e.g., augmented reality, virtual reality, and real-world) environments. Dr. Doswell is the founder, president, and chief executive officer (CEO) of Juxtopia®; a privately held for-profit biomedical and information technology company with a mission for improving human performance®. Prior to starting Juxtopia, Dr. Doswell lead several commercial engineering teams at fortune 500 companies ranging from Lockheed Martin and SAIC to KPMG as their senior software engineer. Also, Dr. Doswell contributed to early biomedical and nanotechnology informatics algorithms while working at the National Cancer Institute to help create better cancer treatment. Additionally, Dr. Doswell invented and successfully led Juxtopia to secure research and development (R&D) funding for the development of Juxtopia’s innovative wearable technology products for improving human health and learning. The Juxtopia® Augmented Reality (AR) platform is one wearable technology platform from which various wearable AR products are created for improving human training ranging from neurosurgery to public health response training. Also, from this platform, Dr. Doswell led Juxtopia to secure an unprecedented 1st of its kind contract to develop innovative learning technology to train all U.S. Army 68W medical personnel to improve their tactical combat casualty care (TC3) skill proficiency. Dr. Doswell, observing the painful-problems that prevent the untapped, underserved, and underrepresented communities/companies around the world, to achieve high-growth markets and high-paying employment, Dr. Doswell created the Juxtopia® Urban Innovation and Cooperative Entrepreneurship (JUICE) Network. The JUICE Network guides minority companies, colleges, universities, and federal labs to transition their innovative concepts to commercial products and at which underrepresented populations may increase their skill proficiency to contribute to improving human performance®. Dr. Doswell sits on several not for profit boards and is chair of the American Public Health Association (APHA) Health Informatics and Information Technology (HIIT) Section and active member of the American Telemedicine Association (ATA); Association of Computing Machinery (ACM); Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE); Maryland Cybersecurity Counsel; and Maryland Telemedicine Committee. Dr. Doswell also sits on external advisory committees at colleges/universities across the United States.
