I started my scientific experience at Jagiellonian University where I studied biotechnology and graduated with a master of science degree. In course of this study I did an internship at The University of Chicago where I was captivated with a molecular biology. I pursued my PhD degree at The University of Edinburgh, where I joined Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell Biology. After I completed my PhD degree I moved to Vienna where I worked as a postdoc at IMBA. Later I decided to switch gears and I moved from academia to industry where I worked with NanoTemper Technologies as an application scientist developing and supporting biophysical applications for biomolecular interactions and stability. In 2020 I decided to return to academic research and I joined Department of Physical Biochemistry at Jagiellonian University later to join the Max Planck Research Group at MCB within the ERC project. In my current research I plan to combine my previous biophysics know-how and RNA experience to develop novel approaches for the RNA stability characterization with the use of cutting-edge analytical systems.

Outside of lab I am a father of two fabulous kids with whom I like reading and hiking. I also used to enjoy cycling, skiing, running and long road-trips.
