Participation in a research project entitled “Influence of biometeorological conditions on landscape perception and objectivization of its assessment”. Grant NCN UMO-2016/21/B/ST10/01864 (2016/2018)

Participation in scientific and research works concerning the collection and analysis of material from the trunks of pine trees. Aim of the study: to determine the incremental sequence of the Pinus sylvestris L. in the northern part of the city of Poznań. (03-05/2016)

Participation in research on environmental transformations of the alder forest in the vicinity of the Żurawiniec Reserve in Poznań. Age development by dendrochronological method. Project number N N305059140. (10-12/2015)

Current doctoral research is based on the field of dendrochronology. Basing on analyse of tree rings and quantitative wood anatomy of coniferous trees, which is a growing field of dendrochronology, it is possible to search for specific information about climate, droughts or sustainable forestry management. The obtained information on incremental patterns will be used for estimating and forecasting potential climate change and deepening the knowledge in the field of quantitative wood anatomy research.
