I’m a PhD student at MIT EECS and CSAIL, where I work on natural language and speech processing under the supervision of Dr. James Glass. My current research interests are in developing and understanding language representations, 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.
