Hi, thanks for visiting my website! My name is Agnieszka (Aga) and I am a second-year PhD student within the Artificial Intelligence Group at the University of Cambridge. Broadly, I am interested in systematic generalization and compositionality in deep learning.
I am affiliated with Lucy Cavendish College. Starting from November 2019, I serve as the representative of the AI research group at the Graduate Students’ Forum. My supervisors are Sean Holden and Mateja Jamnik.
Until February 2020 I interned at Mila under supervision of William L. Hamilton. I worked on compositional generalization in multi-agent communication. In March 2020, I am starting an internship under supervision of Anirudh Goyal and Yoshua Bengio.
I received my MSc (with Distinction) at the University of Edinburgh where I worked with the BayesWatch group on relational reasoning with neural networks. I also hold a BSc degree in Computer Science from the Jagiellonian University. In my final year I was investigating extreme learning machines under supervision of Wojciech Czarnecki (currently at DeepMind).
In the meantime, I had an opportunity to intern in data science at IBM, Architech and Barclays UK.
I’m a traveller at heart: visited 35 countries and lived in five so far. On that note, I had a chance to learn four foreign languages, which allows me to throw awkward sentences in attempts at icebreaking to this day. I also like reading and will try to keep track of the books I recently enjoyed.
