I’m a postdoc at Harvard SEAS, where I work on natural language processing, focusing on language representations in neural networks. I’m affiliated with the Mind, Brain, Behavior initiative and work mainly with Stuart Shieber. I’m also affiliated with the NLP group and the CCNLab at Harvard.

I maintain an active collaboration with the Spoken Language Systems group at MIT CSAIL, where I completed my PhD under the supervision of James Glass. My PhD thesis analyzed internal langauge representations in deep learning models, with particular applications to machine translation and speech recognition.

Before that I worked on community question answering and prepositional phrase attachment.

Before coming to MIT I worked as a software engineer in IntuView while pursuing a Master’s in Arabic Studies at Tel Aviv University with a thesis on the Arabic dialect of Jisir izZarga. My undergrauate degree was in Mathematics and Arabic Studies, also at Tel Aviv University.

I’ll be joining the Technion Computer Science Department as a faculty member in Fall 2020.
