I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science, George Washington University (GW).
I am also the founder and Director of the GW NLP lab CARE4Lang.

Before joining GW,  I was Research Scientist (Principal Investigator) at the Center for Computational Learning Systems (CCLS), Columbia University in New York. I am also co-founder of the CADIM group with Nizar Habash and Owen Rambow, which is one of the leading places and reference points on computational processing of Arabic and its dialects.

My research interests span several areas in computational linguistics/natural language processing: computational lexical semantics, multilingual processing, social media processing, information extraction & text analytics, machine translation, and computational socio-pragmatics. I have a special interest in low resource language processing with a focus on Arabic dialects.

I am currently the elected President for the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) Special Interest Group (SIG) for Semitic Language Processing (SIG-Semitic) till December 2016, as well as the elected President for the ACL SIG for the Lexicon (SIGLEX) (October 2013-September 2016).
