Elman Mansimov

I am a Ph.D. student at New York University, where I work with Kyunghyun Cho. I do research in machine learning, in particular neural networks and its various applications (mostly language).

Previously, I did an undergraduate degree in Computer Science at University of Toronto supervised by Ruslan Salakhutdinov. I also did internships at Google Brain, Facebook AI Research and Apple.
