About Me

Scientist, engineer, gamer and an AI enthusiast.

Currently working at Isomorphic Labs, where we are looking to reimagine Drug Discovery from the AI first principle. Prior to that I worked at DeepMind, where I was focusing on multi-agent deep reinforcement learning as a path to develop general artificial intelligence.

Before that I completed my PhD at the GMUM research group led by prof. Jacek Tabor at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow.
