I'm a postdoctoral researcher at the UKP Lab in the computer science department at TU Darmstadt. I conduct my research here with Prof. Dr. Iryna Gurevych.

I was a Ph.D. student at Heidelberg University, supervised by Prof. Dr. Michael Strube. The title of my Ph.D. dissertation is "Graph-based Patterns for Local Coherence Modeling". I conducted my research as a member of the NLP group at HITS gGmbH, located in Heidelberg, Germany. I graduated with an M.Sc. in Artificial Intelligence (AI) from the computer engineering department at the Sharif University of Technology in 2012. My master thesis was dedicated to unsupervised grammar induction under the supervision of Prof. Dr. GholamReza Ghassem-Sani. I have a B.Sc. in computer engineering (software) from Arak University in 2008.

I'm interested in machine/deep learning methods and natural language processing (NLP). Please also see my publications!
