Naelah Alageel

Decision Support Center

Naelah Alageel is a software engineer at the Decision Support Center (DSC) for King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) and Boeing. Alageel holds a MS degree in Software Engineering from King Saud University (KSU). Alageel’s thesis research, “Web Usability Engineering of Bioinformatics Online Motif Discovery and Localization Tools” contributed to developing usability-engineering frameworks that incorporate usability testing tools (such as Morae and Eye Tracking) to assist professionals across disciplines in their assessment of bioinformatics tools and in their endeavor to identify usability problems and measure user satisfaction.

At the DSC, Alageel is currently working toward the development of decision support systems that provide intelligent decisions and recommendations for the defense and security sectors based on advanced modeling, simulation, and big data analytical tools.

In addition, Alageel is a part of the Tactical and Operational Wargaming Project, developing a dynamic virtual environment for military operations using the latest modeling, simulation, and analysis (MS&A) technologies that support decision makers in the military domains to understand better and anticipate potential threats and gaps and to explore options and alternative solutions in a timely manner.

Alageel’s research interests are in data science, tangible user interfaces, augmented reality, and human–computer interaction.
