Klematis

My name is Arman Cohan and I am a PhD student in computer science at Georgetown University. I am working under supervision of Dr. Nazli Goharian and I am part of the Information Retrieval Lab. My broad areas of interest include Natural Language Processing, Information Retrieval and their applications in healthcare. I have published at several conference and journal venues, including EMNLP, NAACL, SIGIR, IJDL, JASIST, ECIR, LREC, and ACM-BCB. I have received a number of awards, including the EMNLP 2017 Best Long Paper Award. You can check out my full CV here.
