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. My PhD supervisors are Sean Holden and Mateja Jamnik. At Mila I am supervised by William L. Hamilton, Anirudh Goyal and Yoshua Bengio.

Broadly, I am interested in systematic generalisation and compositionality. In my PhD, I am investigating these problems in the domains of emergent communication and visual reasoning.

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. I also represent PhD students in the Equality and Diversity Committee at the Department of Computer Science and Technology.

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.
