# Rabeeh Karimi Mahabadi

## Short Biography

I am a PhD student in the Natural Language Understanding group Natural Language Understanding group at Idiap Research Institute and EPFL, under the supervision of James Henderson.

I work on representation learning for text. In particularly, I work on representation learning for modeling abstraction.

My end goal of research, would be to reuse the learned representation in other domains such as summarization.

## Education

I received my Bachelor in Electrical engineering (Communications and signal processing) from Amirkabir university of Technology,Iran and my master in Computer science (Computer vision and machine learning) from ETH, Zurich.
