Scientific interests

My interests are connected to ecology, species structure, distribution, and the usage of diatoms (microscopical algae) in water environment research. I am a Ph.D. student in the Doctoral School of Natural Sciences at Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland. I work with a team in the EMI project under the supervision of Dr Krzysztof Pleskot. In the research, I focus on describing the diatom communities in coastal lakes, which are under pressure from marine disturbances such as storm surges and tsunami waves. My bachelor’s and master’s thesis in biology and current Ph.D. dissertation are under the supervision of Prof. Mikołaj Kokociński in the Department of Hydrobiology at the Faculty of Biology (AMU, Poznań, Poland).
