President Maada Bio's appointment of Dr. Moinina David Sengeh as Chief Innovation Officer, Directorate of Science and Technology, is spot on.

The Directorate of Science, Technology and Innovation will be within the Office of the President but executing its functions through the Office of the Chief Minister Professor Francis David. The Directorate will also work closely with the Ministry of Technical and Higher Education to advance scientific research in schools and colleges.

The Vision of the Directorate of Science, Technology and Innovation is to transform Sierra Leone into a prosperous nation through Science, Technology and Innovation. The Directorate will facilitate and support a vibrant national innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem for both public and private sectors.

Dr. Sengeh completed his PhD at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he developed award-winning technology for human augmentation. He received his bachelor’s degree at Harvard University in Engineering Sciences, where his research focused on aerosolized vaccines for tuberculosis.

At the time of his appointment, Dr. Sengeh was Manager at IBM Research Africa, where he leads the healthcare team developing solutions in artificial intelligence and machine learning. He has published several academic articles and holds several patents.

Dr. Sengeh is globally recognised for his work and accomplishments: he is a Senior TED Fellow, a National Geographic Emerging Explorer, Forbes 30 Under 30 and most recently, an Obama Foundation Leaders: Africa Fellow.

He is credited for seeding the development of the innovation ecosystem in Sierra Leone through Global Minimum and the Innovate Salone programme, which he co-founded in 2007 and which has supported the innovation journeys of thousands of young Sierra Leoneans.
