I received MSc in artificial intelligence and PhD in applied informatics from Comenius University in Bratislava, Slovakia. I have been teaching and doing research in the area of cognitive science, which allows me to combine my professional background with my long-standing interest in human cognition and psychology. I mostly do computational models of cognitive phenomena related to knowledge representation and meaning construction, language origins and acquisition, cognitive semantics and qualitative reasoning. I have been collaborating with researchers at the University of Otago in New Zealand, which has been a very enriching experience for me, both professionally and personally.
I am a senior member of the Cognition and Neural Computation Research Group.
I supervise master students of cognitive science (mIKV) and bachelor students of applied informatics (bAIN). See their completed theses, and the list of open master and bachelor topics (in Slovak) I am currently offering.
I like to spend my leisure time outdoors or by making and playing various kinds of traditional Slovak flutes and bagpipes.
