Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor of the Computer and Information Science department at University of Mississippi (Ole Miss). I got my doctorate degree at Penn State in the College of IST. My doctorate advisor was Professor Dongwon Lee. I am an ex-Amazonian at Alexa Privacy and an ex-intern at Yahoo Research and VMWare OCTO. I am interested in making AI and Machine Learning models more robust, safe and explainable to the users! I am looking for highly motivated research interns, master and Ph.D. students to do research in security and explainability for Natural Language Processing models. Ole Miss also has a competitive four-year award FCN Founders Graduate Fellowship for Ph.D. applicants.
