Hi there!

I’m a second-year Ph.D. candidate at the Department of CSAI at Tilburg University. I’m part of the NWO-funded project InDeep: Interpreting Deep Learning Models for Text and Sound, and happy to be supervised by Afra Alishahi, Willem Zuidema, and Grzegorz Chrupała.

My research focuses on analyzing and interpreting deep neural models of language (both written and spoken) by treating them as mathematical functions, rather than mere black boxes that take inputs and give outputs. I try to develop analysis methods that can faithfully elucidate the interplay and flow of information within neural networks.


I completed my Master’s degree in Artificial Intelligence at Iran University of Science and Technology, where my research revolved around the interpretation of pre-trained language models and the utilization of interpretability techniques to accelerate their inference time, under the supervision of Mohammad Taher Pilehvar.

Before that, I got my Bachelor’s in Computer Engineering from Ferdowsi University of Mashhad. During that, I was working under the supervision of Ahad Harati as a team member of the Nexus RoboCup Simulation Team.
