Science communication


In 2019 I was awarded the Imperial College President’s Award for Excellence in Societal Engagement.



As a member of The Spokesmen of Science Foundation I’m on the national list of Polish experts for contacts with media; more information and links in the media here.

I also contribute to the official Imperial College student blog as well as the MPE CDT blog. I have written articles about issues such student mental health for Student Minds or women in STEM for Imperial College.


On Saturday 25th November 2017 I gave a TEDx talk “Let’s have a maths party!” at TEDx Wandsworth.

I represented my department twice in the Imperial College Three  Minute Thesis competition, winning the first prize in 2018. You can watch one of my performances here.

During my PhD I was teaching a variety of courses for undergraduate students at the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College. I led maths workshops for middle and high school students in the Wohl Reach Out Lab. I also led Python and Machine Learning courses for Thalesians.


I organised and volunteered during science events such as Pint of ScienceImperial Science FestivalImperial Lates or multiple outreach events organised by MPE CDT.

I graduated from the mentoring program Lean in STEM, where under Joanna Bagniewska‘s eye I was developing my science communication skills.

As a part of FameLab, I participated in a three-day-long science communication and media engagement masterclass taught by Jacek Mikulski, Jacek Wasilewski and Quentin Cooper.

I am a member of a group of science writers Neuwrite London.

I completed the online course Writing in the Sciences created by Stanford University.
