roundedI am a Research Scientist at UC Berkeley, working with Prof. Trevor Darrell. I have completed my PhD at Max Planck Institute for Informatics under supervision of Prof. Bernt Schiele. My research is at the intersection of vision and language. I am interested in a variety of tasks, including image and video description, visual grounding, visual question answering and others. Recently, I am focusing on building explainable models, addressing bias in existing vision and language models, and detecting semantic mismatch in context of multimodal misinformation.

Excited to share that I will be joining TU Darmstadt (Germany) as a W3-Professor starting September 2023 (further supported by a €2M LOEWE Start Professorship)! I am looking for prospective PhD students and postdocs. If interested, please reach out via email (see below) and include your latest CV.

I am Ukrainian and I stand with my people against Russian aggression. One-pager with tiny instructions that make a huge difference.
