I’m a PhD student at MIT EECS and CSAIL, where I work on natural language processing and understanding under the supervision of Dr. James Glass. My current research interests are in developing and understanding vector representations for language, especially based on neural networks.
I previously completed a Master’s degree under the supervision of Dr. Regina Barzilay, where I wrote a thesis on neural network architectures for prepositional phrase attachment disambiguation.

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.
