About Me


finding peace in times of turmoil


I grew up in Warsaw, Poland. And though I truly love the city and consider it a true home, after 25 years it was time to move on. My choice was Munich where I worked for 5 years and now Utrecht - cause why not? I'm always very excited to talk about my research and tend to forget not everyone takes interest in mitochondria... Yes, I'm tend to be a bit nerdy...

Besides that I'm an open, easy-going person, with an ironic (sometimes black) sense of homour. I like difficult topics and long discussions with company of good white(!) wine.

But not to be too serious I (once in a while) like hitting the town and party (dancing has to be included).

And most importantly I'm open to new people and challenges. I like taking roads less travelled.


Following T. Heyerdahl:
Boundaries? I have never seen one, but I hear they exist in the minds of some people.

Do not think about the problem, think about the solution.
There is always sun behind the clouds.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Currently due to my apartment situation I can't host, but I'm more than happy to hang out.


I heard about couch surfing from friends who came to visit me in Munich, they were so excited about the whole idea that it was infectious :)


Besides science my interests are visual arts, with focus on painting. I mostly enjoy art from the end of XIX century (A. Mucha, H. Toulouse-Lautrec). I also try to draw myself.

Other than that: music, dancing, cooking.

Music, Movies, and Books

This list would be way too long...
In brief: books and movies must be uneasy. Best ones are those which stay in my mind for weeks and make my change something about myself.

Music: in general indie rock. But I like being exposed to everything.
