Background and activities

 

Working in Jing Ye's group.

Background

I graduated from University of Warsaw in the interdisciplinary Cognitive Science Programme (Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics, Faculty of Psychology, Faculty of Philosophy, Centre of The New Technologies, Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology). My previous work was focused on 3D genomics and chromatin organization in cognitive disorders. I am interested in multiscale modelling of brain and cognition and in understanding the molecular background of brain activity.
