ABOUT ME

I come from one of the beautiful region in Poland Kraków-Częstochowa Upland. It is full of limestone castles and caves.

Currently I am a PhD candidate at University of Warsaw.

My research lines include geomicrobiology, volcanic areas, lava caves and the extremophiles thriving there, biofilm formation, and non-invasive study for identifying abiotic sources of organic compounds by microorganisms settling rocks.
I am focused on early photosynthesis, adaptations of microorganisms to various factors, interactions between organisms in extreme environments and secondary metabolites of extremophiles. In addition, I design terrestrial experiments as an analog to conducting investigative missions on the planets Mars and Venus.

PAST RESEARCH
Animal Science and Oceanography
The Great Belt (Storebælt)
Dry suit diving
Harderwijk sampling
porpoise
Glasgow conference

   In the Fjord&Bælt Center I did research into the behaviour of marine mammals (porpoises) and mother - calf interactions in captive  environment. Through my next study at the Aarhus University (National Environmental Research Institute, Roskilde) I was involved in SAMBAH Project (Static Acoustic Monitoring of the Baltic Sea Harbor Porpoise) and analyzed of acoustic data from hydrophones.

The next step was investigating  a new non - invasive method for studying captive porpoises in Harderwijk Dolphinarium and Fjord&Bælt Center. My research was focused on obtaining DNA and volatile compounds from exhalation samples of blow hole.

Zoos are important facilities for maintaining conservation and research on wildlife animals. Through my internship I studied how captive animals behave and take part in the reproduction process as part of the survival of endangered species.
