About Me

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

Prior to joining AI2, 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.
