Bashar Alhafni

(بشار الحفني)

Aloha there! I am a computer science graduate student at the University of Southern California (USC). Prior to USC, I obtained my bachelors degree in computer science from the University of Bridgeport.

Currently, I am working as a graduate student researcher at the USC Information Sciences Institute (ISI) as part of the Center on Knowledge Graphs research group where I am working on Knowledge Representation and Semantic Modeling . I am fortunate to work with Professors Satish Kumar Thittamaranahalli, Pedro Szekely, and Craig Knoblock.

My research interests lie in the fields of natural language processing and machine learning, particularly in neural machine translation, information extraction, and combinatorial optimization.
