Dr Abdoul Jalil Djiberou Mahamadou is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Biomedical Ethics working on the identification of ethical, social, and legal considerations arising in the context of AI and the drug discovery and development process in partnership with Part of his current work focuses on designing policies for the responsible use of AI to mitigate algorithmic unfairness. Before his appointment at Stanford, Dr. Djiberou completed a Mitacs Industrial Postdoctoral Fellowship at Simon Fraser University where he worked on the identification of lifestyle factors contributing to successful cognitive aging in the older adult population using Machine Learning techniques. He holds a Ph.D. and an M.Sc. in Computer Science and an M.Eng. in Applied Mathematics from Université Clermont Auvergne, and a B.Sc. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Fez. His Ph.D. dissertation focused on the development of new unsupervised machine learning models and their applications to health data mining. In 2019, Dr. Djiberou was named the best Nigerien student in France based on academic performance by the Réseau des Etudiants Nigériens de France.
