Professional info

Salma Mesmoudi, PhD, research engineer in Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbone university MATRICE Project at Institute of System complexe since 2012. I received my PhD in Artificial intelligence from the UFR of arificial intelligence and bioinformatics in the École National de Sciences Appliquée de Tanger (ENSAT) in Morocco, on November 2005. I was a postdoctoral researcher at the « Institut National de rechercher en Informatique et Automatique (INRIA) » on 2008, the Laboratory of informatique at UPMC (LIP6) during 2009, the « Institut National de recherche Agronomiques (INRA) » on 2010, and the laboratory of biomedical imaging (LIB) at the Institute of health and medical research (Inserm 2011). I am a member of Complex System Socity. My research activity is related to the integration of the large multi-source and multi-scale data.

Lecturer of Master EdTech at Paris VII

Septembre 2014 - Aujourd'hui

cours Master M1-M2: Participative and Citizen Sciences.

Open Science allows citizens to participate in the scientific research process in different possible ways: as observers, as funders, by identifying images or/and analysing data, or by providing data themselves. This allows for the democratisation of science, and it is also linked to stakeholders' engagement and public participation.

In this course we will introduce the basis of how we could making an open science from the conception of the project, how people could contribute to this project, the basis of open licence, the use of open file formats to exchange or diffuse knowledge, and finally, open used and produced data.

Post-doctoral fellow at Inserm

2010 - 2012


  • Subject: Treatment of large quantities of data in the field of functional imaging of the brain, genomics, and scientific bibliography.

  • Goals:

    • Design of data-mining and text-mining strategies for medical data

    • Design of new strategies for the processing of large masses of data

  • Results:

    • Linking of multimodal MRI images obtained by different methods (networks of functional connectivity, cognitive networks, anatomical networks) and genetic expression maps.

    • Proposition of a new functional model that integrates these different sets of results of brain imaging and genetics.
