CV

Biography

I am a first-year PhD student at Boston University, currently advised by Professor Assaf Kfoury. Before I came here, I attained my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the American University of Beirut, Lebanon.

My research interests include machine learning and computer vision. I have been exposed to various applications including but not limited to synthetic dataset generation, pre- and post-processing, and model training and evaluation. I am currently working as a research intern at auxi Inc. to help build and optimize an AI assistant for knowledge workers. Feel free to check this demo for the MVP.
