Employment and Education

I am diving into the world of investment banking, with full enthusiam, continuing my passion for problem-driven research, striving to tackle mission-critical problems in the facinating world of finance.

Previously, I explored the field of computational psychiatry, as a postdoctoral fellow in Icahn school of medicine at Mount Sinai, under the mentorship of Dr. Cheryl Corcoran and Dr. Guillermo Cecchi.

I was advised by Prof. Aram Galstyan for my PhD thesis (USC), "Hashcode Representations of Natural Language for Relation Extraction".

I have active collaborations with IBM Research (NY), MIT, NYU, and U. of Montreal.

In the past life, I had the privilege of learning under the guidance of Prof. Nora Ayanian (USC), Prof. Amarjeet Singh (IIIT Delhi), and Prof. Fabio Ramos (U. of Sydney).
