"I am a third-year PhD candidate in literary studies at the Doctoral School of Humanities. I am preparing a doctoral dissertation on Józef Wittlin's manuscripts. My scientific interests include the history of 20th century Polish literature with particular emphasis on the interwar period, the history of Polish essays, and digital humanities.

I have been present at TD UJ since the beginning of my PhD studies: first as Secretary of the Management Board, then Vice-President and, from September 2022, President. I am also a representative of doctoral students in the University Senate.

In my free time, I like to explore my additional interests, including: the history of Polish diplomacy, the history of Krakow and the history of architecture. During the trips organized by me, I convince everyone of the undeniable functional and aesthetic value of interwar modernist architecture. I like to discover (mainly by bicycle) and present forgotten, undervalued places to others and to search for details present in the city space that are unnoticed by most residents. In my discovery of the city, I pay particular attention to the traces of the Austrians' presence in Krakow in the form of the fortifications belonging to the former Krakow Fortress complex. Additionally, I am a licensed Krakow guide, spending most of my stipend on Krakow Museum publications."
