About Me

CURRENT MISSION

understand Brussels

ABOUT ME

I'm an urbanist. While I enjoy occasional cycling and trekking in the countryside, it is cities that interest me the most.

As a researcher and wannabe-activist, I try to understand and improve urban transport in Brussels.

I find Brussels one of the most puzzling cities I have ever experienced. I work there at two of the local universities, but at the same time try to stay in touch with what's going on in Wroclaw (Poland), where I come from.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I surf, host, and surf again.
