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!
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.
Prior to GT, I studied for my bachelor's at the American University of Beirut, Lebanon.
March 2019: I have successfully defended my Ph.D.!
January 2019: Submitted a new paper to ICML-2019 on (deep) learning of heuristics for general integer programming. Technical report coming soon to the ArXiv!
December 2018: Combinatorial Attacks on Binarized Neural Networks (Poster) is accepted to ICLR 2019 - see you in New Orleans!
September 2017: Paper accepted to NIPS 2017 for a Spotlight presentation (top 4% of submissions)!
May 2017: I have received the Outstanding Poster award for discrete optimization at the NemFest Workshop 2017!
April 2017: Two papers accepted to IJCAI 2017 (see below)!
March 2017: I have received an IBM PhD Fellowship for 2017-2018. Thanks IBM!
