Photo Welcome to my personal web pages. I am Associate Professor in the Department of Informatics, Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB), head of AUEB's Natural Language Processing Group, and head of AUEB's eLearning Unit. I am also Adjunct Researcher of the Institute for the Management of Information Systems (Digital Curation Unit) of the Research Centre "Athena" and Senior Research Advisor of StrainTek. Before joining AUEB, I worked at the Institute of Informatics and Telecommunications of NCSR "Demokritos", and what is now the Centre for Language Technology of Macquarie University in Sydney. I received my PhD and MSc degrees from the University of Edinburgh, after graduating from the National Technical University of Athens.

My expertise is in Artificial Intelligence, especially Natural Language Processing. My current research interests include the following topics:

  • question answering for databases, ontologies, document collections, and the Web,
  • natural language generation from databases and ontologies, especially Semantic Web ontologies,
  • text classification, including filtering spam and abusive content,
  • information extraction and opinion mining, including sentiment analysis,
  • natural language processing tools for Greek, for example part-of-speech taggers and named-entity recognizers,
  • machine learning in natural language processing, especially deep learning,
  • natural language processing in digital curation.

Most of my publications are available on-line, some with accompanying software and datasets. My web pages also contain information on the research projects I am involved in, the courses that I teach, the student projects that I have supervised or that I propose, and ways to contact me.

I participated in the organization of the BioASQ challenges and the SemEval Aspect-Based Sentiment Analysis task. I also co-organize the meetings of AUEB's Deep Learning Study Group. You can find more information about me in my CV (in English and Greek). If you need a break, you are welcome to visit my Flickr photostream.
