About Me

Shiva Omrani's Photo

Welcome to my personal website! I'm Shiva (pronounced shee-vaa), a machine learning (ML) engineer currently working for Booz Allen Hamilton. My interests include ML, natural language processing (NLP) and fairness in Artificial Intelligence (fair AI).

Research

I have conducted research on how human biases can be learned by and perpetuated through artificially intelligent systems under the supervision of prof. Aylin Caliskan. My work involves designing techniques to detect, evaluate and mitigate harmful biases from static and contextual word embeddings such as GPT models which will eventually help with bias mitigation in nlp down-stream applications.
My research has won "the best student research award in computer engineering and machine learning" in GW research showcase 2021 and has been featured in CAPWIC 2021.


My Resume


Hobbies

I have numerous hobbies when I'm not coding or reading CS articles. I enjoy building lego sets, playing video games, and reading about history, particularly the history of the United States and England. I am also a huge fan of astronomy and astrophysics, and I enjoy working with my Celestron NexStar 8SE telescope!
