I am a Greek computer scientist currently in my third year working towards a DPhil in Computer Science at the University of Oxford. My research is focused on Computational Linguistics, and specifically on Compositional-Distributional models of meaning. Before I came to Oxford I've been working for many years as a software engineer and a translator/editor of CS textbooks and scientific journals. I have an MSc in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Edinburgh.


While in Oxford I mainly work with Mehrnoosh Sadrzadeh; I also collaborate with Stephen Pulman, Bob Coecke, Edward Grefenstette, and Nal Kalchbrenner. In the past I worked with Mark Steedman and Panagiotis Kanavos.


  • Computational Linguistics tutor (Hilary 2012- 13, Hilary 2013-14)
  • Object Oriented Programming tutor (Michaelmas 2013-14)
  • Concurrent Programming tutor-Keble College (Hilary 2013-14)


Two MSc students, Jiannan Zhang and Jianpeng Cheng, on variations of the following project:


  • 5-12-2013, Queen Mary University of London: Disambiguation in Compositional Distributional Models of Meaning


  • COLING 2012 term-definition dataset
  • CoNLL 2013 verb disambiguation dataset
  • EMNLP 2013 transitive version of the Mitchell and Lapata (2010) verb-object dataset -- original human judgements
  • QPL 2014 transitive version of the Mitchell and Lapata (2010) verb-object dataset -- new human judgements
