I like Machine Learning research, Arts, literature, traveling and analog photography.


Currently, I am a DPhil student at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford, supervised by Niki Trigoni and Andrew Markham. In 2019-20, I was working as a research assistant and lecturer at the University of the Arts London in the Creative Computing Institute. Before that I was on a research internship at ETH Zurich in the EcoVision group (2019) and at Carnegie Mellon University in Franz Franchetti’s group (2017-18). I did my MSc and BSc at the Czech Technical University in Prague.
