Welcome to my corner of the web!I’m Dr. Jean-Leah, an AI trailblazer driven by a profound ‘why’: to harness the potential of artificial intelligence and innovation for the betterment of humanity.
Born in Kenya, my homeland’s vibrant culture instilled in me a profound commitment to positive change that propels my pioneering work at the intersection of artificial intelligence with other realms of science, technology, and engineering -spearheading AI applications for business and social impact.
I earned a PhD in Computational Material Science from Texas A&M, and a Bachelor’s in Chemical Engineering from Prairie View A&M. My academic training delved into cross-disciplinary frontiers like quantum physics, nanotechnology and AI applications.
With a professional trajectory spanning leadership roles in diverse industries- manufacturing, retail, information technology, and technology commercialization. I’ve actively shaped AI strategy, built proficient teams, and enhanced AI capabilities. This experience has enriched my understanding of how innovative AI technologies can be effectively translated into real-world applications and commercial ventures. This journey, alongside academia, has reinforced my commitment to steering AI deployment ethically and responsibly.
I believe emerging technologies present unprecedented opportunities, but their immense power warrants careful steering. Here, we’ll have thoughtful dialogue on directing AI progress guided by conscience – not just capabilities.
Karibu (Welcome)! Please explore, discuss, ask hard questions – and join me in guiding this power for good.
