I’ve graduated from psychology at Jagiellonian University in 2012. At the moment I am a doctoral candidate under supervision of prof. Małgorzata Kossowska. My main research interests are focused on social cognition in the context of socio-emotional aging. My further scientific interests are intergroup relations and political psychology.
