About Me

I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Louisville in Computer Science and Engineering, working at the Knowledge Discovery and Web Mining Lab and advised by Dr. Olfa Nasraoui.
My research revolves around Recommender Systems, specifically, I am trying to investigate problems such as Bias, Fairness, and Interpretability in state of the art Recommender Systems Practices

Research Interests

Machine Learning

As Machine Learning is taking over our daily activities leading to a large amount of Data being generated, I am interested in improving AI and ML algorithms. I am especially interested in Recommender Systems and its related topics

Bias, Fairness and Transparency in ML and AI

I am interested in investigating major flaws in ML algorithms related to Bias. For instance, I study feedback loop bias in Recommender Systems and their impact on both the user and the algorithm performance
