I am a PhD candidate in the computer science department at University of Southern California (USC). I am working with Professor Kevin Knight at the Information Sciences Institute (ISI). Prior to joining ISI, I got my Bachelor and Masters degree from Sharif University of Technology.
My research interests are in the fields of Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Recently, I have been working on machine translation for low resource languages where we extend automatic translation technology to hundreds of languages that are not covered by the current machine translation systems.
