## About me

I got my PhD in algebraic geometry from University of Warsaw in June 2017 under supervision of Prof. Adrian Langer and Dr Piotr Achinger.

Then, from September 2017 until August 2020, I was a research scientist in the Chair of Algebraic Geometry of École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne led by Prof. Zsolt Patakfalvi. I am currently a postdoc with Prof. Lenny Taelman in Universiteit van Amsterdam. My CV can be found here .

In free time I like to cook some vegan food and go cycling or bouldering (check out my crowds YT channel).

## Research interests

- algebraic geometry in characteristic $p>0$,
- deformation theory,
- geometry of Calabi-Yau varieties,
- ordinary and supersingular varieties,
- hyperbolicity questions.

## Teaching activities

During the winter semester 2020/2021 together with Lenny Taelman, I organized a seminar in deformation theory intended for PhD students fully available online. Please take a look here for the details, recording and the notes.
