I am a PhD student of the Mathematics of Planet Earth Centre for Doctoral Training. My research interests include statistics, financial mathematics and stochastic analysis, applied to areas such as energy economics or ecology. Currently I am studying how renewable energy sources influence electricity prices. This research project is supervised by Dr Almut Veraart from Imperial College, together with Dr Oliver Feron from EDF.

I also engage in science communication. You can find my popular science articles on my personal blog. My articles appeared in magazines such as Getty ScienceChalkdust Magazine or Crazy Nauka (the biggest Polish popular science portal) and won the Science Seeker Award 2018 in the category "Physical sciences and technology". I also contribute to the official Imperial College student blog as well as the MPE CDT blog. Apart from that, I have written articles about student mental health for Student Minds.

Having graduated from a mentoring program Lean in STEM, where under Joanna Bagniewska's eye I was developing my science communication skills, I succesfully participated in FameLab Poland and FameLab UK, including London final 2017 and Polish national semifinal 2017 and national final 2018. As a part of Famelab, I participated in a three-day-long science communication and media engagement masterclass taught by Jacek Mikulski, Jacek Wasilewski and Quentin Cooper.

I represented my department twice in the Imperial College Three  Minute Thesis competition, winning the first prize in 2018. You can watch my performance here

Now I hold the presidency of Imperial College London SIAM student chapter. As a part of my role I have organised events such as Welcome Week 2017/18, Christmas party 2017, ICL-UCL Day 2018, annual SIAM conference 2018, weekly JAMS and many other social and academic events.

I also lead maths workshops for students middle and high school students in the Wohl Reach Out Lab.

I was an invited speaker at many conferences and workshops, including Science Polish Perspectives 2017Energy Finance Christmas Workshop 201713th German Probability and Statistics Days 2018 or Statistical Inference in Energy Markets

On Saturday 25th November 2017 I gave a TEDx talk "Let's have a maths party!" at TEDx Wandsworth.
