I am a researcher and Ph.D. student in the Institute of Psychology at the Jagiellonian University. I work under supervision of Marcin Bukowski, Ph.D. My master thesis concerned the susceptibility to seeing illusory correlations. Currently I am involved in the research on norms perception in the context of control deprivation. I am also interested in stereotypes and prejudice topic.
