Sari Saba-Sadiya, I am a Palestinian graduate student pursuing a dual Ph.D in computer science under Dr Joyce Chai as a memeber of the Language and Interaction Research (LAIR) Lab, and neurocience under Taosheng Liu as a memeber of the Neuroimaging of Perception and attention Labratory. My main areas of intereset are computational linguitics and discourse theory, attention, and the grounding of vision and language in the brain. I received a Bachelor in Computer Science, and a Bachelor in Mathematics from the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. Subsequently I worked in VLSI at Apple Inc. before becoming a fulbright grantee in MSU.
