I completed my MA in Applied Psychology and PhD in Psychology at Jagiellonian University in Cracow, Poland (both with specialization in neuroscience). During my master and PhD studies I also completed research internships at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany (2010) and at the Donders Institute in Nijmegen, Netherlands (2012). I worked as a visiting PhD student and EEG lab manager at Central European University in Budapest in the Social Mind and Body Group (2013-2017). After finishing my PhD, I worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Cognition & Philosophy Lab (led by prof. Jakob Hohwy) at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. Since 2019 I've been working as a postdoctoral researcher at Central European University in Budapest and Vienna.


My research interests focus on the self and identity, especially body as a part of it and the potential of technology to extend the concepts of body and self. Currently I am investigating psychological and neurocognitive mechanisms of identification with a virtual body (avatar) as an example of plasticity of the self. I am also running projects investigating disorders of the self (depersonalization disorder) and how they relate to digital media use, self-consciousness, and cultural evolution of social identity.
