As of October 2016 I have joined the Amazon Alexa team as a Research Scientist.
Before joining Amazon I was a postdoc at the Cognitive Computation Group at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, where I worked with Dan Roth on extending Semantic Role Labeling (SRL) and Cindy Fisher on computational models of language acquisition.
Previously, I was a PhD student in Computational Linguistics under Mark Steedman and Sharon Goldwater. My PhD research focused on the underlying structure of syntactic categories (not necessarily Parts-Of-Speech) across languages and how (or if) they relate to semantic primitives.
Before starting my PhD, I received a MSc degree in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Edinburgh and before that an undergraduate degree in Digital Systems and Technology Education from the University of Piraeus in Greece.
