Pierre Colombo, Postdoctoral Research at CNRS

About Me

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the CNRS team of L2S on Safe AI with Pablo Piantanida. My research focuses on Natural Language Processing and its applications. My PhD entitled Learning to represent and generate text using information measures was conducted at IBM France in collaboration with the SSA group in Telecom Paris. My advisors were Chloé Clavel (Télécom Paris) and Giovanna Varni (Télécom Paris).

Where I come from …

I have a PHD in Computer Science from Telecom Paris. I also hold two MSc in Computer Science from CentraleSupelec (France) and EPFL (Switzerland). Prior to my PhD I worked at Disney Research with Mubbasir Kapadia , James Kennedy, Ashutosh Modi and at IBM Research where I had the chance to be closely supervised by Matteo Manica and Maria Rodriguez .
