Mamoun Mardini, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Outcomes and Biomedical Informatics at the University of Florida (UF). He is a trained computer scientist and an engineer with research expertise in applied artificial intelligence and wearable technology in healthcare. He is a member of the Data Science and Applied Technology Core in the University of Florida (UF) Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center (OAIC). Dr. Mardini is currently involved in interdisciplinary projects that combine biomedical science, artificial intelligence, and wearable technology. He received a scholarship from the National Institute on Aging OAIC to develop an Electronic Health Records-based frailty index using machine learning approaches. He also received a seed funding from UF Informatics Institute to develop a smartwatch application to detect face touching and mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Additionally, he plays an essential role in the development of the ROAMM framework (Real-time Online Assessment and Mobility Monitor), which leverages wearable technology for continuous and long-term monitoring to capture information surrounding intervening health events (IHE) such as fall. Finally, Dr. Mardini has utilized his artificial intelligence expertise to analyze various medical datasets concerning hospital readmission, physical activity recognition, heart transplant, chest pain, sarcoidosis, sepsis, and COVID-19.
