I am a Ph.D student in Computer Science at Stanford University. I work with Chris Manning and Jeff Heer and am a member of the Stanford NLP Group and the UW Interactive Data Lab. I’m presently interested in the intersection of NLP and HCI. I have also worked on syntactic parsing, machine translation, and coreference resolution. Naturally, my papers tend to have some Arabic.
