I am on the job market for tenure-track positions in Computer Science or Operations Research!
Check out my CV (research and teaching statements available upon request).
Please get in touch if you have an interesting opening for me!

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Computational Science and Engineering at Georgia Tech.

My research interests are in the areas of machine learning and discrete optimization.

In particular, my goal is to improve discrete optimization solvers and algorithms by using machine learning.

Recently, I have been also working on discrete problems that arise in deep learning, where continuous optimization methods fail and combinatorial algorithms are more natural.

I am advised by Professor Bistra Dilkina. I also collaborate with Prof. George Nemhauser.

Prior to GT, I studied for my bachelor's at the American University of Beirut, Lebanon.
