I’ve always had a fascination for aquatic ecosystems and due to this fascination I began studying Oceanography at the University of Gdansk (Poland). The third year of my studies I spent in Portugal, at the University of Algarve in a framework of Erasmus program and this was the moment I decided not to come back to Poland.

I received International MS degree in Ecohydrology in 2012. This master’s degree program was carried out as part of the Erasmus Mundus at the following Universities: University of Algarve (Portugal); University of Kiel (Germany), University of La Plata (Argentina) and the experimental part of my final master thesis was conducted at the University of Espírito Santo, Vitória, (Brazil).

After receiving my master degree I did a short post-​graduation course in Geomatics at the University of Algarve, which made me more comfortable to work with geographical information systems and using geostatistical tools in ArcGis 10.0.

In 2012 I’ve started to work as a research assistant in the freshwater project, which aimed to predict abiotic habitat conditions and biota in streams under the climate change scenarios. Some of the data collected was used to develop my Ph.D dissertation, which focuses on macroinvertebrate assemblages and ecological processes in regard to different aquatic habitats at various scales. Each process I studied can be used as an indicator of the ecosystem’s health. The application-​oriented objective of my dissertation is to evaluate a set of indicators (structural and functional) and examine at which scale these indicators are the most applicable. Also, my work deals with the determination of the main factors driving habitat structuration and macroinvertebrate occurrences at the catchment scale. High variability among macroinvertebrate communities at larger scales hampers water quality assessment and thus, part of my work focuses on classification of the streams into categories, which would allow to deliver more adequate ecological metrics. The primary goal is to improve the bio-​assessment methods and the river management plans for the Mediterranean intermittent streams.

In October 2016 I became a part of a team led by Miguel Araujo and I’ve started to work on “Iberian Ponds” project. My main tasks are related to field data collection, macroinvertebrate identification and experiments with the use of N and C stable isotopes.
