I graduated from the Faculty of Economic Sciences at the University of Warsaw in 2006 and received a PhD degree in economic sciences in 2011. I completed four years of Master Program in sociology at the Institute of Sociology at the University of Warsaw. I am a fellow of The Bekker Programme visiting London School of Economics and Political Sciences, and a fellow of Higher Education Scholarship for Excellent Young Scholars. I am a member of the Steering Commitee of the European Health Policy Group (EHPG) and an external associate of the Ageing and Health Incentives Lab (AHIL). I cooperate with the 4EU+ research based education project on successful ageing in smart cities.

My research interests concern processes of individual ageing over the life course as viewed from the perspective of behavioral and institutional economics. My research is focused on the formation of preferences and habits over the life course; outcomes in the end of life; inter vivos and post mortem intergenerational financial transfers; non-kin networks of informal support; and smart city solutions for ageing populations. Currently I investigate the impact of the exposure to communism on preferences and behaviours related to health in later life and examine factors shaping preferences towards active mobility.
