Nikolaos Stylianou

I am a Ph.D. candidate at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki affiliated with the Intelligent Systems Lab @AUTH, under the supervision of Ioannis Vlahavas.

Previously, I received my B.S. in Computer Science from University of Essex in 2014 and my M.S. in Big Data and Text Analytics from University of Essex in 2015, where I worked with Udo Kruschwitz and Massimo Poesio.

My research is focused on Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. Specifically, I am working on the combination of Coreference Resolution and Language Models in order to model distant intra-linguistic features, with minimal computational cost. Generally, I am interested in self-supervised learning and it’s applications past Natural Language Processing to a multi-modal scope. If you are interested in collaborating, feel free to reach out.
