I'm a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Columbia University where I am part of the natural language processing group since Fall 2017. My research advisor is Smaranda Muresan.

Prior to joining Columbia, I worked as a Research Associate at the Center for Complex Engineering Systems (CCES) that is held jointly at King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) and MIT.

Research Interests

My research is in natural language understanding and machine learning. I work on developing computational models to facilitate the automatic detection of misinformation. I am mostly interested in understanding how argumentation mining and discourse analysis can be used to improve misinformation detection on text from multiple genres.
