From WordNet (r) 2.0 [wn]:

n : a person with advanced knowledge of one of more sciences
[syn: {[person] of science}]
n 1: a person who uses scientific knowledge to solve practical

meta.scientist attempts to advance knowledge(by solving problems)related to the advancement of science.

The area is, a form of: knowledge(based)science/engineering.

Shooting towards(the aiding of)doing science, not getting lost only in theory nor just the day to day.

As science is one of the more rigorous knowledge(based)fields, I expect any work (as in any science) to have much broader benefits.

I'm interested in the type of AI/ModelBasedReasoning, that could aid scientific-discovery, sometimes seen in practice, as taking the form of Aided_Problem-Solving-Environments.
