Welcome to my homepage,

I am Ali Khaledi, Ph.D., a physicist and neuroscientist by training as well as a data scientist and AI researcher by practice

Here I am presenting a mix of mostly professional and partly personal updates. I am from Iran and moved to the US in 2014 for my Ph.D. Since then I called the US home. Now I am located in the San Francisco Bay Area. After my Ph.D. at Ohio University, I did a postdoc at the Department of Neurosurgery at Stanford University School of Medicine; you can read more about my work in my Research summary section. Then I worked for CODA biotherapeutics which was a gene therapy startup focused on developing a treatment for epilepsy. After the company went under due to lack of funding, I moved to Amazon web services (AWS) as a research scientist.

I am trained as a theoretical and computational physicist, I have expertise in the fields of nonlinear dynamics, stochastic processes, signal processing, statistics, biophysics, and network sciences. These days I am into Data science and machine learning, and I use these tools for diverse scientific problems. I am passionate to use my computational skills and neuroscience knowledge to shape the future, build new products, and further our understanding.

I am on a mission to learn new hard and soft skills daily; for that, I have rigorous daily learning routines. I have dedicated two hours of daily learning sessions, one hour is for reading books and the rest is for taking courses. One of the things I love about Amazon is that learning is a principle here. "Learn and Be Curious" is one of the original leadership values set by Jeff Bazos. The more I learn about Jeff, the more I like him, he possesses a truly unique way of problem-solving and it is embedded in the DNA of Amazon. Amazon is a place where I am thinking to stay for a long time.
