I am a Ph.D. candidate in the College of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and I am a member of the Database and Information Management Lab. I am advised by Prof. Alexandra Meliou and Prof. Azza Abouzied (NYU Abu Dhabi). My research interests include data management, information retrieval and natural language processing.
During summer 2017, I interned at Microsoft Research, in the Data Management, Exploration and Mining (DMX) group. During summer 2016, I interned at IBM Watson. During spring 2016, I visited NYU Abu Dhabi, UAE. During summer 2015, I visited the AMPLab at the University of California, Berkeley. During my Master's studies, I visited the Data-Intensive Systems group at Aarhus University, Denmark. During my Bachelor's studies, I interned in the Database Lab at the University of California, Riverside.
