I am a third year PhD student in the Computer Science Department at Columbia University. My main research interests are Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. I earned my undergraduate and master’s degrees (with highest honors) in Egypt where I also worked as a software engineer for three years. Over the past few years, I worked on cutting-edge research, published at top conferences and interned at Microsoft and Google.

Question: Why do you think it’s important for you to attend GHC?

Answer: “To inspire and get inspired.”
