I’ve got a master degree in Biology and Psychology and I’m a PhD student at the Jagiellonian University since 2015. So far, my research was focused on existential uncertainty and intergroup perception. I’m also interested in various aspects of individual’s worldview (especially religiosity, search for meaning and hypocrisy) and motivational traits. I like to read about evolution, genetics and physics (esp. astronomy).
