Hi, thanks for visiting my website! My name is Agnieszka (either /aɡˈɲɛʂ.ka/ or Aga works).
I am a second-year PhD student within the Artificial Intelligence Group at the University of Cambridge and a (long-term) research intern at Mila. I am affiliated with Lucy Cavendish College. My PhD supervisors are Sean Holden and Mateja Jamnik. At Mila I am supervised by William L. Hamilton, Anirudh Goyal and Yoshua Bengio. Follow @slowiika
Broadly, I am interested in systematic and compositional generalisation in deep learning. In my PhD, I am investigating these problems in the domains of multi-agent communication and visual reasoning.
I do my best to contribute to the departmental activities as well as to the broad machine learning community (most recently, as a reviewer for ICML 2020, EMNLP 2020 and NeurIPS 2020). I also have a great passion for teaching and I currently teach and supervise undergraduate students in STEM at the AI4GoodLab 2020. For more academic activites, please refer to Varia.
I hold an MSc with Distinction in Operational Research with Data Science from the University of Edinburgh. In my MSc thesis I proposed a new approach to relational reasoning with convolutional neural networks. I also hold a BSc degree in Computer Science from the Jagiellonian University. In my BSc thesis I investigated probability distributions defining random projections in extreme learning machines under supervision of Wojciech Czarnecki.
In the meantime, I had an opportunity to intern in data science and software engineering at IBM, Architech and Barclays UK.
I’m a traveller at heart: I 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 love mountains and Andrej Ivašković.
