My main research interest consists on using population genetics and genomics to identify genes underlying traits as well as applying genetics and molecular methods to answer questions of general interest in evolutionary biology. I am also keen on tropical biology and ecology. My current PhD project is aimed at understanding of the genomic basis and architecture of singing behavior in canary birds by integrating population genetics, genomics, and linkage mapping approaches.


Prior to my ongoing PhD studies, I graduated from the Jagiellonian University in Cracow, Poland with a MSc thesis about heterozygosity-fitness correlations, supervised by Aleksandra Biedrzycka and Jacek Radwan. Afterwards I gained experience working 2 years in the Museum and Institute of Zoology PAN, Warsaw, Poland and Technical University of Munchen, Germany as a research assistant. I worked in the molecular laboratory, developed set of microsatellites and sexing markers for birds. I have extended fieldwork experience: tropical biology courses (Venezuela and Madagascar), followed 4 months ornithological field work in New Caledonia.
