Who I am:

This year, I’m wrapping up my master’s degree in Molecular Biotechnology at Jagiellonian University. Over the past two years, my focus has been on protein engineering, specifically tailoring protein cages formed by Lumazine synthase for various applications. I find satisfaction in reading about modern research and the innovative methods employed in it. I tend to incorporate an engineering approach into both my scientific work and daily activities. Apart from my wet lab work, I explore various computer methods, including machine learning, to analyse the vast amount of scientific data available nowadays. The genesis of life and methods of modifying it are fundamental topics that intrigue me. In my leisure time, I enjoy gardening, tinkering with different projects, and occasionally painting with watercolours. While reading, I stick to stoic or mind philosophy, and detective stories. Sports-wise, I spent years playing water polo and rowing.

My BioLAB work in the lab focuses on:

I expect that my BioLAB project will focus on multidomain microscopic studies, including single-molecule techniques and light tweezers. What fascinates me is the opportunity to immerse myself in the development of microscopic tools and sophisticated data analysis.

I decided to apply for a BioLAB program because:

As a first-year undergraduate student, seeing the BioLab poster sparked a dream within me. Since that moment, I’ve been envisioning myself as part of this program. I believe that through BioLab, I’ll have the chance to meet incredible people, immerse myself in groundbreaking techniques, get vast knowledge, and simply have a fantastic time in such a dynamic environment.

After completing my BioLAB Program I would like to:

After finishing the BioLab Program, my dream is to pursue a career in synthetic biology. Maybe one day I will be able to create a molecular Frankenstein.
