I am a member of the team since 2002. I received my PhD from Jagiellonian University and after post-doc which I did in Virpi Lummaa’s group I am back in Poland. Currently I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health, Jagiellonian University Medical College.

I am interested in trade-offs between the lifetime reproductive effort and health condition, and lifespan of parents.
