I was born in Warsaw, Poland, where I studied Biology and Psychology at the University of Warsaw. I received my B.Sc. in Population Genetics in 2011 and continued education at the faculty of Oceanography and Marine Environments at the University of Pierre and Marie Curie (Paris VI), where I obtained my M.Sc. diploma in 2014. I am currently a Ph.D. student at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Plön (Germany), working within the group Evolutionary Genetics of fish, under supervision of Dr. Arne Nolte. My work focuses on transcriptome analysis and studying thermal adaptation in the sculpin fish study system.
