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 questions exploring 19th century Polish and European history, intellectual history, history of concepts, and methodology of humanities.
My current research project, financed by the Polish National Science Centre, aims at investigating the transfers of concepts within ‘early socialism’ in the period 1825-1848, touching upon mostly the British, French, and Polish branches of the ideology. I intend to trace how these concepts could wander across national and linguistic contexts and identify the factors, mechanisms, and effects of these transfers.
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). 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.
