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
Welcome to my personal and professional journey! I'm originally from Iran and moved to the US in 2014 to pursue my PhD. Since then, I've considered the US my home, and I'm currently based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

- A Chinese media interviewed me and wrote about this piece in Science magazine: 为了读博，我差点卖掉一个肾
March 2023: My Sci rep paper became among the top 100 papers in neuroscience "Dynamics of phase oscillator networks with synaptic weight and structural plasticity"
March 2023: Published a piece in Science Magazine with the printed title "Priced out of Science", and online title "I almost sold a kidney to pursue my PhD" In this piece reflecting on my own difficulties paying for graduate school application fees, and identifying this as an ongoing issue excluding students from less wealthy nations. I got many replies where people told me their versions of going to extremes to get an education.
March 2023: Started modelling the dynamics of plastic Network-Network interactions
Feb 2023: The Encyclopedia of Child and Adolescent Health, went online
Oct 2022: I joined Amazon as a research scientist in the AWS network capacity team.
Oct 2022: Finished editing the Brain development section of the Encyclopedia of Child and Adolescent Health, the full book becomes available in early 2023
Sept 2022: A new paper got published in Scientific Reports. "Dynamics of phase oscillator networks with synaptic weight and structural plasticity"
June 2022: A new paper got published in Scientific Reports. This is my first paper as a senior author "Depolarization of echo chambers by random dynamical nudge"
April 2022: A new paper got published in the journal "Frontiers in network physiology" Long-lasting desynchronization of plastic neuronal networks by double-random coordinated reset stimulation
