I’m a final-year PhD Student at Rutgers University currently working on the design and development of machine learning and deep learning algorithms for solving problems in Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing. More specifically, my research focuses on developing deep generative models for self-supervised scene understanding and language understanding. Before joining Rutgers, I obtained my B.Sc in Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in 2016.

In my free time, I travel and think about how to use day to day experiences to solve AI problems!

  • I interned at Apple Care's Business Intelligence team, designing natural language understanding models to identify, suggest and connect related customer support issues.

  • I interned at Dataminr, designing a prototype for deep multi-modal unsupervised machine translation.

  • I interned at Disney Research, designing and developing a natural language understanding model for semantic parsing of textual scripts , as well as a hierarchical deep neural model with attention for online dialogue topic modelling.

  • I’m also a reviewer for several AI journals and conferences and journals including ICLR, AAAI, AISTAT, NAACL, Webconf, LDK, etc.


I am always looking for exciting research and professional opportunities, so if you want to get in touch, please look at my contact page.
