I’m a third-year PhD student in Computer Science at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Language and Speech Processing advised by Kevin Duh. I’m currently interested in neural machine translation, in particular improving the handling of morphological complexity and dialectal variation. These interests stem from my experiences at the University of Chicago, where I completed my BS in Computer Science and pursued extensive studies in Arabic. Before CLSP, I worked on information extraction at BBN Technologies and worked on unsupervised morphology with John Goldsmith at UChicago.
