Shabnam Behzad

Hi!

I'm a fourth-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Georgetown University. I'm a member of NERT, Corpling@GU, and GUCL. My advisors are Nathan Schneider and Amir Zeldes. Before Georgetown, I got my B.S. in Computer Engineering at Sharif University of Technology.

Broadly, I'm interested in Natural Language Processing and Computational Linguistics. Currently, I'm working on projects related to grammatical error correction, data augmentation, and cross-lingual models.
