Research Staff Member - NLP
Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY USA



I am a research staff member at IBM Research using NLP and machine learning for doing question answering, search and representation learning with a particular focus on the medical domain. Before joining IBM in 2016, I did my PhD at Bar-Ilan University in the Natural Language Processing (NLP) lab of the Computer Science department. My PhD research was focused on detecting context-sensitive semantic relations between words, using distributional semantics and machine learning methods. Prior to this, I spent several years in the hi-tech industry as a software engineer and system architect.
