About

I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Stanford University, advised by Percy Liang. I am interested in fair, robust, and reliable machine learning. In the past, I have also worked on natural language processing.

Before joining Stanford I did my Masters at CSAIL MIT supervised by Martin Rinard and my B.Sc. in Computer Engineering at Sharif University of Technology.
