I grew up in Warsaw, Poland’s capital city, and I am ‘the 90’s kid’. I graduated in Environmental Biology from the University of Warsaw. I also studied Computational Methods of Physics at the same university. I defended my Ph.D. at the School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia in Norwich, UK.
Since then, I have worked as a bio-modeller and a bioinformatician in research institutes in Warsaw, Poznań, Paris. Currently I am back in Warsaw after moving to commercial data science.
For more detailed info on projects I did, see the tab RESEARCH.
