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.
