About Me

I am an AI Research Scientist Manager at FAIR and an Affiliate Associate Professor in Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington.

Prior to joining FAIR, I was the Research Manager of the PRIOR team at the Allen Institute for AI. Before that, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Computer Science Department at Stanford University. I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from UCLA, advised by Alan Yuille. I obtained my Masters degrees from Simon Fraser University and Georgia Institute of Technology and my Bachelors degree from Sharif University of Technology.

Students and Interns

I have had the pleasure of working with the following students, Pre-doctoral Young Investigators (PYI) aka residents, and interns.
