I am a Sir Henry Wellcome fellow currently working with Jim DiCarlo and Nancy Kanwisher at MIT and Zoe Kourtzi at the University of Cambridge.

Broadly I’m interested in how the primate brain process visual information. Specifically, I study how the primate brain recognises objects and the underlying computations of visual processing. I use fMRI, EEG, MEG, behavioural measures and single-cell recording data, together with computational modelling to understand these processes better. Currently, I focus on modelling the visual object representations using topographical deep neural networks and studying dimensions of object recognition.

After completion of a BSc in Biotechnology at the University of Warsaw, I did an MPhil and a PhD in Biological Sciences at the University of Cambridge. My PhD was in the field of breast cancer genomics where I worked with Jason Carroll. I collaborated with Simon Baron-Cohen using genomics techniques in autism research. During the PhD, in parallel to the genomics research, I started working with Marieke Mur and Niko Kriegeskorte to gain experience in cognitive computational neuroscience, investigating feature-based and categorical representations in object recognition, and face similarity and identity. Subsequently, I was a Humboldt fellow working with Radek Cichy at the Free University Berlin, studying animacy dimensions in object recognition.
