About Khaled Khairy

Dr. Khairy obtained his PhD as a computational physical chemist at Northeastern University (Boston, MA) and completed his postdoctoral training in computational cell biophysics at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (Dresden, Germany). He joined St. Jude as the inaugural director of the Center for Bioimage Informatics and an associate member of the St. Jude faculty. As Director of the Center for Bioimage Informatics, Dr. Khairy is responsible for leading an in-house team of data scientists spanning backgrounds in computer science, applied mathematics, physics, imaging, biology, and bioinformatics to address image analysis needs at St. Jude. As St. Jude faculty, Dr. Khairy is interested in the interface between deep learning, cell biophysics and image analysis. Dr. Khairy is interested in developing computational tools that allow us to represent biological morphology and biomechanics in a unified modeling framework. Throughout his career, leveraging expertise in computational biophysics, physical chemistry, image analysis and other computational approaches, Dr. Khairy has successfully applied morphology representation techniques to the processing, registration and segmentation of biological imagery at scale. These endeavors are motivated by a need to analyze and understand image data that is steadily increasing in size and complexity in context of biological structure.
