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 and Prof. Le Song.

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