Hello! I'm Helia Hashemi, a Ph.D. student working with W. Bruce Croft in the Center for Intelligent Information Retrieval (CIIR) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. In a broad sense, my research interests lie in the areas of Information Retrieval (IR), Natural Language Processing, and Machine Learning. So far, I have worked on multiple IR tasks, such as non-factoid question answering and performance prediction. More recently, my research is focused on conversational information seeking systems. Essentially, I aim at helping people find the information they need through the most natural way of communication.
