About

I am a first year PhD student at the MIT Institute for Data, Systems, and Society . My research interests are in algorithmic fairness and modern challenges in machine learning such as robustness and privacy. I have worked on understanding the long term impact of fair decision making and understanding how do fairness and privacy interact in learning. I recently obtained my undergraduate degree in Computer and Communications Engineering at the American University of Beirut where I worked on many applications of machine learning such as question answering, disaster detection and reinforcement learning.

In the summer of 2018 I was a visiting student/intern at TTIC working with Mesrob Ohannessian and Nathan Srebro on the long term effects of fair decision making.
