I’m a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Warsaw, MI².AI research lab led by Przemysław Biecek. Prior, I completed my MSc (2022) and BSc (2021) in Data Science at Warsaw University of Technology, Poland.

My main research interest is explainable machine learning, with particular emphasis on adversarial attacks & explanation evaluation. I also care about human-model interaction with applications in biomedicine, and support the development of several open-source Python & R packages for building predictive models responsibly.
