My research interests focus on the constitutional and administrative law of the European Union, mainly on the coordination of EU affairs within the EU Member States, national parliaments, as well as on the interaction between EU and national law.
My research plans during the Max Weber Fellowship include the examination of constitutional, legal and administrative aspects of the implementation of the EU law into the domestic legal system in the United Kingdom and in the Republic of Poland.

I hold a Master in Laws degree (summa cum laude) from Warsaw University. I continued my legal studies at Manchester University prior to beginning my legal studies at Oxford University. At Oxford University I graduated with Magister Juris Degree in European and Comparative Law at St. John’s College, under the supervision of Professor Paul Craig. I was a Visiting Ph.D. Graduate Student at St. Antony’s College, Oxford, and a Visiting Researcher at the European Studies Centre in Oxford.

My doctoral thesis concerns European Union's decision-making process and the role of national administration. My research focuses on the comparative analysis of the case of Great Britain and the Republic of Poland.

Currently I am working as a EU analyst at the European Centre in Natolin and I am a lecturer in Law and Decision-making Process in the EU in Collegium Civitas in Warsaw, a college for international students.

I have been awarded numerous international scholarships, including British Council and Shell Centenary Scholarship, Crescendum Est Polonia Scholarship, Foreign and Common Wealth Office and Batory Trust Foundation Scholarship. I was also a recipient of scholarship for outstanding academic achievements awarded by the Polish Ministry of Education.

I have worked as a consultant for various international organizations and think tanks including Oxfam, Fair Trials Abroad and Oxford Council on Good Governance. I have also practiced in international law firms.
