I am an assistant professor at the Institute of Sociology at the University of Silesia in Katowice (Poland). I obtained a doctorate degree at the Jagiellonian University (Poland) in 2012. My research interests lie in the fields of the sociology of art, urban studies, and the theory of social change. I am the author of several articles and scientific monographs. Recently, I have published papers on American art (Studia Socjologiczne, Przegląd Socjologiczny 2021). I participated in individual and collective research projects both in Poland and abroad. As part of the Erasmus+ program, I conduct regular seminars at the University of Peloponnese (Greece). I worked as an expert for the UNESCO Creative Cities Network program: Creative Crossroads Katowice-Krakow 2030 (2018). In the 2019-2021 academic year, I received a scholarship from the Polish-U.S. Fulbright Commission to Columbia University in New York where I researched the formation of artistic circles at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries in the USA. Thanks to the Inicjatywa Doskonałości Badawczej program of the University of Silesia in Katowice, I continued my research work at the Terra Foundation for American Art in Paris (2021). I am engaged in working for the local community, in particular for the seniors community. I am passionate about traveling, art history and downhill cycling.
