Navid Rekab-saz

I am an assistant professor at Johannes Kepler University - JKU. Prior to it, I was a post doctoral researcher at Idiap Research Institute (affiliated with EPFL), and a PhD candidate at TU Wien. I explore deep learning methods in natural language processing and information retrieval, with a focus on fairness and algorithmic bias mitigation.
