Hello, my name is

Arkadiusz Modzelewski

Data Scientist & PhD Student

About me

I am highly goal-focused and motivated Data Scientist and second year PhD Student at Università degli Studi di Padova and Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology with a drive for continuous development. I conduct my research under the supervision of Prof. Adam Wierzbicki and Prof. Giovanni Da San Martino

I am passionate about bridging the technical and social realms. My research focuses on detecting disinformation and persuasion and manipulation techniques, aiming to address the complex challenges arising from the intersection of technology and society.

Research Interests:
NLP, Weak Supervision, LLMs, Disinformation,
Propaganda, Persuasion & Manipulation Techniques

Highly goal-focused and motivated Data Scientist with a drive for continuous development. As a result of the professional experience and education at the Warsaw University of Technology, armed with very high mathematical and engineering skills. Effective team worker and hard-working person with ambitions resulted in simultaneous studying at two of the best Polish universities in their fields. Besides, my Master’s studies at the University of Bonn (according to the Shanghai ranking 2022: 76th best university in the world, 39th best by subject Economics) equipped me with great statistical and econometric skills and made me capable of participating in any highly scientific project.
