About me

I am a second year PhD student in the Natural Language and Information Processing Group, at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory, supervised by Dr. Stephen Clark. I am a member of King's College.

I did my undergraduate and masters degrees in computer science at the Eötvös Loránt University. During my masters studies and for one more year I have been working at the Neural Information Processing Group. During this period I spent two months as a guest researcher at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence in Saarbrücken, Germany.

When I'm not doing research I am working on music projects, dancing salsa or cycling.

See my CV for a detailed description of my educational background and work experience.


Research Interests

My research interests involve machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision and multi-modal semantic grounding. Currently, I'm focusing on multi-modal compositional semantic embeddings for natural language processing tasks. I am interested in how visual common sense can help in NLP tasks where no direct visual information is involved.

Software

I developed a Python Flickr API for image search to Douwe Kiela's mmfeat github project. It is a Python toolkit aiming to make it easier for researchers to use multi-modal features. Both image and sound (i.e., visual and auditory representations) are supported.


Teaching

Lent 2017 - I was demonstrating and ticking for Machine Learning and Real-world Data, A Part IA CST course at Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge.

Music

I have been singing since my childhood, starting as a member of the children choir of the Hungarian Opera House.

Before I moved to the UK I was the lead singer (and occasional guitarist) of an alternative rock band with whom we made some recordings.

New materials are coming soon...
