I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Houston in December 2022.
I worked at the RiTUAL (Research in Text Understanding and Analysis of Language) lab supervised by Dr. Thamar Solorio and my dissertation was on Named Entity Recognition on Social Media.
My research interest lies in Natural Language Processing (NLP) with a special focus on neural sequence labeling. My research aims to overcome linguistic challenges in noisy environments, making NLP models resilient, robust, and reliable under various conditions.
Specifically, I'm interested in tackling the following challenges:
