Dr. Doswell earned a Bachelor of Arts (BA) from Oberlin College with degrees in Cognitive Neuro-Psychology and Computer Science; a Masters degree in Systems and Computer Science from Howard University; and a Ph.D. degree in Information Technology from George Mason University. His Dissertation, defended in 2005, created the world’s first culturally adaptive artificial intelligent virtual instructor platform that delivers instruction in mixed reality (e.g.,augmented reality and virtual reality) environments. Dr. Doswell is the founder, president, and chief executive officer (CEO) of Juxtopia, LLC, (www.juxtopia.com) a privately held for-profit biomedical and information technology company with a mission for improving human performance®. Prior to starting Juxtopia, Dr. Doswell lead several commercial engineering teams at fortune 500 companies ranging from Lockheed Martin and SAIC to BearingPoint as their senior software engineer. Dr. Doswell has also successfully lead Juxtopia to secure research and development funding for the development of Juxtopia innovative wearable technology products. The Juxtopia® Augmented Reality platform is one wearable technology platform from which various wearable augmented reality products may be created for improving human performance®. Dr. Doswell lead Juxtopia to secure a contract to outfit all U.S. Army combat medics with wearable augmented reality to improve their performance during tactical combat casualty care. Dr. Doswell also invented the Juxtopia® Imhotep platform for creating wearable telehealth products. Doswell ascertains that a significant number of underrepresented minorities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) are provided apprenticeships at Juxtopia. In addition to his for profit company, Dr. Doswell created The Juxtopia Group, Inc. (www.juxtopia.org) to address the shortage of underrepresented minority populations in engineering and technology careers in year, 2000. Dr. Doswell, observing the painful-problems that prevent high-tech minority companies to achieve $1B markets, created the Juxtopia® Urban Innovation and Cooperative Entrepreneurship (JUICE) Network. The JUICE Network guides high-tech minority companies, colleges, and universities, and federal labs to transition their inventions or innovative concepts to commercial products. From the JUICE Network, Dr. Doswell helped to create Phezu Space, the first African American commercial space company in the United States focused on satellite servicing. From the JUICE Network, Dr. Doswell and two of his entrepreneurship apprentices created the 1 st Morgan State University company, iCrystal, in, at that time, Morgan’s 148 year history.
