Curriculum Vitae

Overview: Dr. Abu Saleh Mohammad Mosa, PhD is the Director of Research Informatics at the University of Missouri (MU) School of Medicine and Assistant Research Professor of Health Informatics. Dr. Mosa has an affiliate faculty appointment in the MU Informatics Institute. Dr. Mosa's research area includes informatics infrastructure development for clinical research, mining massive and unstructured data, mining clinical data, mobile health (mHealth), patient reported outcome, Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K), and Big Data for Patients (BD4P). Dr. Mosa obtained his Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), followed by Master's degree in Computer Science from the University College Dublin (UCD) and Doctoral degree in Health Informatics from the University of Missouri (MU). In the past 1 year of his academic career, he has directed more than $100,000 research projects as the PI and participated in more than $7,000,000 collaborative projects sponsored by NIH and PCORI. His research lab includes 3 graduate students and 2 data scientists. He has published more than 10 refereed publications (9 journal and 1 full-length conference/workshop articles) in health/medical informatics and data mining. Since 2013, he has served as the reviewer for five international journals including International Journal of Data Mining and Bioinformatics (IJDMB), Photogrammetric Engineering and Remote Sensing (PE&RS), International Journal of Communication Systems (IJCS), Journal of Medical Internet Research (JMIR), and International Journal of Medicine and Medical Sciences (IJMMS). He also served as the reviewer for four conferences since 2014 including Medicine 2.0, AMIA Annual Symposium, AMIA Joint Summits on Translational Science, and International Workshop on Biomedical and Health Informatics. He has served as the program committee member in the International Workshop on Biomedical and Health Informatics in 2015, 2016, and 2017. He also served as the assistant editor for MedIno2017 and technical program committee member for BIBM 2017.
