I am a third year PhD student in the Natural Language and Information Processing group at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory, where I am advised by Prof Ann Copestake and Dr Ryan Cotterell. I am supported by the Vice-Chancellor's and Selwyn College Scholarship. Prior to starting my PhD I did the BSc in Computer Science at the University of St Andrews and completed the MPhil in Advanced Computer Science at the Computer Laboratory in Cambridge. During those degrees I was generously supported by the G. D. Fahrenheit Scholarship, awarded by the City Council of Gdansk.

I specialize in Natural Language Processing. My main research interests include distributional semantics and cross-lingual learning, with a focus on morphologically rich languages.
