Alireza Khodaei is a research assistant at MBiTe lab. He joined the department of computer science and engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) in 2014. He has collected working experience from academia and industry over more than a decade before joining to the UNL.
He is interested in developing mathematical models and software tools for analyzing and simulating the communicational and computational functionalities at every level of the nervous system. He utilized high-performance computing (HPC) and high-throughput computation (HTC) platforms for scaling up his analysis to a larger population of neurons and extracting insight from the generated data. He is an active member of several communities within ACM and IEEE concerning Machine Learning, Signal Processing, Biomedical Systems, Computational Neuroscience, Scientific Computing and Big Data.
He has published in several accredited international conferences and has acquired several awards and scholarships from Google, National Center for Multiscale Modeling of Biological Systems (MMBioS), Open Science Grid (OSG), National Computational Science Institute (NCSI), and UNL College of Engineering amongst others.
