I hold a B.Sc. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Aleppo University, a M.E. and a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the American University of Beirut (AUB).

My research focus is broadly in the area of natural language processing. In the past, I have worked on sentiment analysis and machine translation. The current focus of my research work is to develop a fact checking system that is able to evaluate the veracity of claims or articles, evaluate the reliability of media sources, and create a profile for each source representing its bias with regards to key topics. This involves stance detection, language semantic evaluation, natural language inference and learning document representations.

Aside from research, I play the violin, and I also play soccer and basketball.

Arabic Language Processing

The Arabic language is spoken by over one billion people around the world. Arabic presents a variety of challenges for speech and language processing technologies. In our group, we have several research topics examining Arabic, including dialect identification, speech recognition, machine translation, and language processing.
