I received my PhD from the Machine Learning Department and the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition at Carnegie Mellon University. I was a member of the Brain Image Analyis Group led by Tom Mitchell.

In 2009 I completed a BE in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the American University of Beirut. In 2008, I did an internship in the Kanwisher Lab at MIT.
