My name is Ehsan Qasemi. I am currently pursuing my PhD. in computer science at University of Southern California (USC) under supervision of Muhao Chen and Pedro Szekely. My current research is focused at the intersection of Natural Language Processing (NLP),Machine Learning (ML), and Knowledge Graphs (KG) with focus on Machine Common Sense (MCS) reasoning. My work has been partially funded by DARPA's Machine Common Sense (MCS) and Data-Driven Discovery of Models (D3M) programs.
Feel free to check my GitHub and reach out if you want to talk about my projects.
