Pierre Colombo, PHD Student

About Me

I am a third (and last!) year PhD student in the SSA group at Telecom Paris and IBM in Paris. I conduct my PhD under the supervision of Chloé Clavel (Télécom Paris), Giovanna Varni (Télécom Paris) and Emmanuel Vignon (IBM). I am working on Natural Language Generation and Representation of Natural Language. My research takes inspiration from Information Theory and I closely collaborate with Pablo Piantanida.

Where I come from …

I 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 .

I am always happy to discuss new projects and collaborations.
