I am a passionate PhD student specializing in biomolecular NMR spectroscopy at the University of Warsaw. With a solid foundation established during my bachelor’s studies (under the supervision of Dr. Michał Nowakowski), where I successfully elucidated the structures of modified enkephalins using NMR-derived restraints, I continued to refine my skills during my master’s studies. My dedication to advancing knowledge led me to participate in the Visiting Student Program at KAUST, Saudi Arabia, where I expanded my expertise in NMR spectroscopy and protein expression techniques under the guidance of Prof. Mariusz Jaremko.
Through my academic journey and professional experiences, I am steadfast in my pursuit of scientific discovery and innovation, poised to contribute meaningfully to the advancement of knowledge in my field.

I am actively participating in the University’s life. During the 2023/2024 term I was a Member of the Board of the PhD Students Union of the University of Warsaw. For more than a year I am serving as a PhD students representative in the Senate Committee on Human Resources Policy Affairs and the Senate Committee on Scientific Affairs. At the Faculty of Chemistry I represented doctoral students point of view as a Member of the Teaching Council and the Council of the Faculty of Chemistry, contributing to important academic and administrative decisions. Through these diverse roles, I’ve demonstrated strong organizational prowess, and effective interpersonal skills, making meaningful contributions to the university community.

Bachelor Thesis: Structure elucidation of enkephalin analogs

Master Thesis: Optimization of expression protocol of bacteriocin (BacSp222) in E.coli bacteria and the analysis of NMR spectra of BacSp222 in LDAO micelles
