I am a final 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 description of my educational background and work experience.
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.
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.
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.
2016/17 - I co-supervised Christopher Davis, a Master student, on his thesis project about mutli-modal semantics. He got distinction and later a PhD position in our research group.
2017/18 - I was a Mentoring Officer and Representative in the Cambridge Computer Laboratory's Graduate Forum of Women@CL. Women@CL is an organisation to support women in computer science. It involves a mentoring system and provides representation of role models by organising talks and conferences.
2017 - I organised the Cambridge NLIP Seminars, which is a weekly seminar series in NLP and Machine Learning related topics.
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.
