Pinelopi (Nelly) Papalampidi

I am a final year PhD student at the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh and member of EdinburghNLP under the supervision of Mirella Lapata and Frank Keller.

I am interested in language grounding and multimodal NLP, representation learning, self-supervised learning, graph structures/graph neural networks, latent variable models, summarization and memory-augmented language modeling. My PhD thesis focuses on structure-aware movie understanding and summarization.

Before that, I completed my diploma (combined BEng and MEng) at the National Technical University of Athens in Athens, Greece, department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Recently, I also interned with the Language team at DeepMind with Tomas Kocisky and Kris Cao, and with the Computer Vision team at MetaAI with Marcus Rohrbach.

I will soon finish my PhD and be on the job market!
