I am a lawyer and criminologist, professionally affiliated with the Faculty of Law at the University of Bialystok. I conduct scientific research on criminal law and criminological aspects of sexual crime against children on the Internet and all forms of victimization and delinquency of young people, especially online. I cooperate with researchers from all over the world, including within the framework of the International Self-Report Delinquency Study (ISRD) project. I am a member of prestigious criminological organizations: European Society of Criminology and American Society of Criminology. I regularly present my research results at national and international scientific conferences. My decision of pursuing the research career was prompted by winning the main prize in the Ombudsman for Children’s Rights competition for the best master’s thesis in Poland on child abuse for the thesis entitled “Grooming – selected aspects of prooming”. “Grooming – selected pranovarrative and criminological aspects”. I am currently preparing a dissertation on sexual crime against children on the Internet. My adventure with the Fulbright program began with the Fulbright Junior Research Award grant stay in the US. As part of the grant, I conducted research at the Crimes against Children Research Center at the University of New Hampshire during the 2020/2021 academic year. My stay in the United States influenced not only my academic career and the research I conducted, but also my personal life. I visited more than a dozen states, and during the grace period I traveled by car across America, road tripping from the East Coast to the West Coast. I met a lot of wonderful people during my fellowship, and I gained my small American family of choice in New Hampshire. In my free time, I love traveling, and a little closer to home, spending time in nature. There is no better way to start my day than a daily morning yoga followed by a long walk in the woods with my dog.
