Mozhdeh Gheini

I'm a first-year Computer Science Ph.D. student at the University of Southern California. Prior to that, I received my bachelor's degree in Software Engineering from the Sharif University of Technology and my master's degree in Computer Science from the University of Southern California.

My current research focus is on Machine Translation, especially on improving neural machine translation of low-resource languages using interpretable transfer learning. I am honored to be advised by Prof. Jonathan May in the USC ISI NLP group.
