Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.

I am a 1st year PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Warsaw advised by Przemyslaw Biecek. Prior, I did 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 medicine, and support the development of several open-source Python & R packages for building predictive models responsibly.

I received the 2022 John M. Chambers Statistical Software Award.
