I am a research and teaching assistant working at the Institute of Political Sciences and Administration at the University of Opole. I graduated with a degree in journalism and social communication as well as in information management in new media. I also studied in Germany as part of the Erasmus program. My research interests are focused on smart cities, new technologies, but also socio-political and ecological challenges with a global impact. I conducted research on smart cities in Denmark and South Korea, and thanks to the Fulbright scholarship also at the University of California, Berkeley. In addition, I actively support the HumanDoc Foundation in the realization of projects related to global education and sustainable development. I am interested in film and advertising production, I love to edit movies, watch cabarets and – to the general irritation of my audience, play the ukulele.
