Personal profile


I’m a Ph.D. candidate as well as a lecturer at the Department of Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence (CSAI) of Tilburg University. My Ph.D. thesis is titled “An NMT Framework based on Language Understanding.” It is divided into two main parts: (i) will investigate neural machine translation for low-resource language, e.g., Persian, through cross-lingual knowledge transfer, and (ii) aims to delve into multilingual and multi-domain adaptation.

Prior to joining Tilburg University, I was a postgraduate member of the Guilan NLP Group and a part-time lecturer at the Computer Engineering Department of the University of Guilan. I earned my BSc and MSc degrees in Software Engineering in 2016 and 2019, respectively. During my master’s thesis, I designed sentiment analysis models using deep learning architectures for low-resource languages, with a focus on Persian.
