I am currently pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) under the supervision of Professor Dekai Wu.

Before joining HKUST, I did a Master degree in Software Engineering at the Department of Computer Science, University of Science and Technology Houari Boumedienne, Algiers, Algeria.

I am currently doing research on statistical machine translation with a particle focus on word alignment, semantic role labeling, machine translation evaluation, quality estimation, automatic post editing and semantic analysis of text.

Please feel free to check my curriculum vitae and my Google Scholar.
