I am a Professor of Computational Linguistics at the University of Crete. I earned my BA in Greek Philology specializing in Linguistics from Aristotle University, Thessaloniki. I continued my studies obtaining an MSc in Computational Linguistics and Formal Grammar, and a PhD in Linguistics, both from King’s College, London. I have worked at Royal Holloway, University of London, the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), the Open University of Cyprus and the University of Gothenburg. From 2016 until 2021, I was the Associate Director of the Center for Linguistic Theory and Studies in Probability (CLASP).
Curriculum vitae (pdf)
My research interests lie within Computational/Formal Semantics/Syntax. Constructive Type Theoretical Semantics and their Implementation, Natural Language Inference and Understanding, Probabilistic Semantics, Dialogue Modelling and the interaction between Logic and Machine Learning/Deep Learning for NLP are some of the topics I have been interested in throughout the years. Furthermore, I have been working on formal and formal dialectal syntax and I also have an ongoing interest in tasks such as Metaphor Detection, Language Identification and Language Similarity.
