Previously, I was working as a Machine Learning Researcher with the NLP team at Huawei Noah’s Ark Lab. In 2020, I received my M.Sc. degree in Computer Science from Carleton University where I was supervised by Dr. Yuhong Guo and I was awarded the Senate Medal for Outstanding Academic Achievement on a graduate level. My thesis, titled “Sequence Modeling with Linear Complexity”, proposes a novel way of performing sequence modeling without using self-attention and with $$O(n)$$ time complexity with respect to the sequence length. I received my B.Sc. degree in Computer Science from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 2016 under Dr. Ioannis Vlahavas supervision.
