My research interests are machine learning, algorithms, game theory and combinatorics. Curriculum Vitae.

Since January 2021, I am a machine learning engineer at Instacart, working remotely from New York. Previously, I worked at Google as a software engineer, I was a research scientist at Yahoo/Oath/Verizon Media, and an applied researcher at Expedia Group.

I finished my PhD from School of Computer Science at University of Waterloo in Canada. My advisor was Shai Ben-David. I was a post-doctoral fellow at AICML at Department of Computing Science at University of Alberta, Canada under supervision of Csaba Szepesvári.

I did my undergrad at Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Informatics at Comenius University in Bratislava, Slovakia. My undergrad thesis advisor was Martin Škoviera. At Comenius University, I also organized Internet Problem Solving Contest, and local math and programming contests and olympiads for high school students.

My wife Lucia and my brother Martin are also computer scientists.
