Ahmed Elgohary Ghoneim


I am a final-year Ph.D. candidate in the computer science department at the University of Maryland, advised by Jordan Boyd-Graber. I work on natural language processing (NLP). My dissertation is focused on interactive question answering and semantic parsing.

I am a member of the computational linguistics and information processing (CLIP) lab. I spent summer 2020 and summer 2019 doing internships at Microsoft Research and summer 2017 at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2). I received an IBM Ph.D. fellowship in 2017.

Previously, I worked on machine learning systems. I spent summer 2015 at IBM Almaden Lab, where we introduced compressed linear algebra for large-scale machine learning (VLDB 2016 Best Paper Award).

I am on the job market, looking for a full-time position in industry starting in August 2021.
