I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts (UMass) Lowell, and an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Harvard University. I joined UMass Lowell after completing Postdoctoral fellowships at Harvard University (Zaklab) and the University of Maryland (CLIP lab). I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the National University of Singapore (NGS, LMS) and my M.Eng. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Tehran (DBRG). More information can be found in my CV.

I direct the Computational Language Understanding (CLU) Lab at UMass Lowell. At CLU, we conduct computational research to tackle some of the key problems in natural language processing (NLP) and healthcare. Prospective students can see this page for current research opportunities.

I organized the CS department's Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 colloquium series. Details can be found here.


My research centers on NLP and its application in healthcare. The current problems of interest include semantic representation, learning with spurious and imbalanced data, curriculum learning, and AI-based diagnosis. My selected publications are listed below, see the complete list here:
