As a multi-disciplinary trained scientist, Ali Boolani seeks to understand subjective feelings of mental and physical energy and fatigue as four separate unipolar constructs. With graduate and post-graduate training in applied physiology, kinesiology, psychology, behavioral economics, and artificial intelligence, Ali seeks to understand these moods from a multi-domain perspective. Ali received a BA and MA from Tulane University in International Political Economics, with a focus on behavioral economics. He then went on to receive a M.Ed. from the University of New Orleans and a Ph.D. from Oklahoma State University in Applied Physiology, where he focused on human movement and motor control. He then completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Georgia in Exercise Psychology, specifically focused on trying to understand feelings of fatigue. He is currently completing a M.S. in Artificial Intelligence (AI) at Johns Hopkins University, where he is focusing his research on the theoretical approaches to AI with the hopes of creating smarter algorithms that may help identify fatigue and prescribe individualized interventions.
Ali is currently a tenured Associate Professor at Clarkson University with a joint appointment in the Department of Physical Therapy and Department of Biology. He has over 50 peer-reviewed publications, 3 book chapters, and 100+ peer-reviewed conference presentations. His work is currently funded through USAID, New York State, several private corporations and foundations.
