Dr. Oualid Ben Ali obtained a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Laval University (Quebec) (supervised by Bernard Moulin since 2001). He is mainly interested in using multiagent systems to simulate behaviors and phenomena in 2D-3D geographic virtual spatial envirnoments.
He is working on a project whose goal is to simulate shopping behavior in shopping malls using geosimulation and multi-agent systems. He received a 2 years - MARIE-CURIE scholarship to work in the Hull York Medical School (York, UK) and in the Hull Immersive Virtual Environment (HIVE) (Hull, UK) as an EVAN post-doctoral fellow. Now, he leads the development of an innovative 3D visualization-based software tools in the field of the geometric morphometrics (GMM). Modern functional models of jaw movement are employed in order to examine possible differences in tooth wear patterns.
