I work at the Arabic Language Technology (ALT), at Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI). I work in the MT team led by Stephan Vogel.

QCRI provides a flavor of industrial and academic research at the same time. It has quickly turned into a world class organization over the last few years and is growing faster than any other place.

Previously I was a Research Associate, under Philipp Koehn, at the Institute of Language, Cognition and Computation at the University of Edinburgh. I worked on different problems in SMT, such as Unsupervised Transliteration and Markov-based translation models.
