I completed my MSc in Biotechnology (2006) at the University of Life Sciences in Poznan, Poland. I obtained my PhD in Cancer Biology (2012) at the University of Zurich having previously worked on the programmed cell death signalling pathway in Arabidopsis thaliana at the ETH-Zurich.

In March 2014 I joined the Helariutta Group at the University of Helsinki to work on a research project focusing on vascular tissue development in the root of Arabidopsis thaliana. In summer 2014 I assisted in relocating the group to the University of Cambridge, as well as preparing the lab for the arrival of our team. Currently I assist Ykä as well as the other lab members in a range of activities. I am responsible for administrative duties, purchasing and safety. I also support our group research activity organizing and coordinating the lab work, as well as providing a technical assistance on various research projects.
