I graduated in Forensic Biology with a Bachelor’s (2018) and Molecular Diagnostics with a Masters degree (2020) at Nicolaus Copernicus University.
My Bachelor thesis described a topic of opportunistic parasitism, while my Master’s thesis dealt with the impact of exposure to extremely low frequency electromagnetic field on the mammalian stress-response systems. During my master studies I had a great opportunity to participate in different academic activities, including POWER workshops.
My main research interests are:
- Neurodegeneration and neuroprotective mechanisms;
- Impact of extremely low frequency electromagnetic field on mammalian organism;
General aim of my doctoral studies is to investigate methods of amplification of endogenous mechanisms of preventing brain damage. I decided to choose this topic because of my growing interest in neuroscience. I also really appreciate vast spectrum of interdisciplinary skill I could possibly learn during my doctoral studies.
