Khaled is Project Scientist for the FlyTEM team project since September 20015.

Khaled studied Chemistry at Alexandria University (Alexandria, Egypt) graduating with a Bachelor of Science in 1994. From 1994 until 1997 he assumed teaching and research responsibilities at the Chemistry Department, Alexandria University (Alexandria, Egypt), and then pursued postgraduate studies in Physical Chemistry at Northeastern University (Boston, Massachussettes). There, he worked on the computational simulation of high magnetic field electron paramagnetic resonance spectra under the supervision of Prof. David Budil and Prof. Piotr Fajer (Florida State University) at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee Florida. He graduated with a PhD in Physical Chemistry in 2002.

Afterwards, he held a postdoctoral position at the Max-Planck-Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (Dresden, Germany; Lab of Prof. Jonathon Howard) until 2007. During that time he worked on the computational modeling of human red blood cell membrane mechanics.

He then joined the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (group of Prof. Ernst Stelzer) where he worked on the development of computational tools for the description of biological morphology and processing of light-sheet microscopy data.

In 2010 Khaled joined Dr. Philipp Keller’s laboratory at Janelia Research Campus, and worked on quantitative computational modeling of fruit-fly embryo morphogenesis.

In May 2014 he became Senior Software Engineer with the Scientific Software team at Janelia, where he worked on the reconstruction and analysis of electron microscopy images.
