About Me

Hi, I'm Yeganeh! I'm a beginner researcher, collaborating with H2Lab at the University of Washington and JHU Center for Language and Speech Processing, and I have the privilege to be mentored by Daniel Khashabi and Yizhong Wang. Also, I'm a teaching assistant at Tehran Polytechnic.

I graduated from Tehran Polytechnic in 2021 with a double bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (Known as Computer Engineering in Iran).

I'm mainly interested in AI, ML, and NLP. My current research is focused on Aligning Language models, building machines that can follow human instructions, improving the performance of models in zero-shot and few-shot settings, and moving toward generalization and unification.

If you have any questions about my work or research/academia/programming-related topics, please feel free to reach out!
