Nader Akoury

I am a 3rd year CS PhD student advised by Mohit Iyyer at UMass Amherst.

After years of working as a lead/AI developer in video games and then as an engineering manager at Yelp, I reassessed my career path so I could pursue my lifelong desire to create engaging interactive storytelling experiences. My research focuses on fundamental advances in NLP and creative use of language.
