Stephen Roller


I am a research engineer at Facebook AI Research (FAIR). My research interests include natural language processing, deep learning, language generation, and textual inference. Most recently, I have joined the ParlAI project, working on dialogue agents.

Before FAIR, I did my PhD in Computer Science at UT Austin under the supervision of Katrin Erk, and was affiliated with the Machine Learning lab. My thesis work focused mostly on lexical entailment and distributional semantics.
