An explorer, a researcher, a historian.



I am an NCN-funded research fellow at the Tadeusz Manteuffel Institute of History of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, Poland. In 2019, I defended my PhD thesis in history at the Faculty of History, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland.

I was a visiting PhD student at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow, Poland (2016-2017) and Université Paris-Est-Créteil (2019-2020); as well as a visiting fellow at the École Normale Supérieure, Lyon (2020) and Free University of Berlin (2022).

My research interests revolve around 19th century Polish and European history, history of concepts, parliamentary history, and methodology of humanities.

My current research project, financed by the Polish National Science Centre, aims at investigating the parliamentary discourses in Poland and the Netherlands in post-Napoleonic Europe. I focus on rhetorical sequences, key concepts and conceptual changes, as well as on inherited traditions and transnational inspirations exerting an influence upon parliamentary proceedings.

I am the author of a book in Polish: Polish Radicals and the Galaxy of Modern Concepts, 1832-1888 (2020), which in 2021 was awarded the 2nd degree of Clio Award for the most distinguished Polish monographs in history and a distinction in the 26th edition of the Professor Jerzy Skowronek Award. Also in 2020 was published my second book, “To destroy all states”. Ludwik Królikowski’s wandering ideas (1799–1879).

In 2020, I was awarded a Scholarship for Outstanding Young Scholars in Poland (2020–2023); and in 2022/23 a Joseph Conrad Fellowship from the Institute de Republica. Moreover, the Rector of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań awarded me a stipend for extraordinary scholarly achievements in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

Since 2018, I have been a member of the editorial board of “Theoretical Practice” - an open-access bilingual journal hosted at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland, that reaches across the social sciences and humanities.

As part of my research, I try to go beyond the walls of Academia. I write popular science articles, book reviews, and essays in Polish and English for media outlets.

I am a devoted researcher, effective administrator, and reliable associate, eager to learn further in a stimulating academic milieu.
