Education and affiliations

In 2013, I graduated with my Master's in economics at the University of Vienna in Austria and at the University of Warsaw in Poland. In 2018, I received a PhD degree in economic sciences at the Faculty of Economic Sciences at the University of Warsaw, where I work as an assistant professor.

In the spring 2016, I was a visting research fellow at the Adam Smith Business School at the University of Glasgow in the United Kingdom within Dekaban-Liddle Junior Fellowship. In the academic year 2016-2017, I was a doctoral research fellow at the Wirth Institute at the University of Alberta in Canada. The fall term of the academic year 2017-2018, I spent on a research scholarship at the University of Tennessee in the U.S. The visit was funded by the National Science Centre in Poland within doctoral stipend Etiuda 4. Following the stay in Tennessee, I was a visiting PhD candidate at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts in the U.S. This stay was possible thanks to the Fulbright Junior Advanced Research Award.


My research interests include non-market valuation, preference elicitation and, in more general, microeconomics. I focus on the use of survey methods to estimate values of non-market public goods, and, in particular, how the survey design can be enhanced to increase validity and reliability of the estimates. My research is mostly within environmental economics, though I have also realized projects in other areas, such as cultural economics. I conduct both field valuation surveys as well as lab experiments.

I have managed the project "Incentive compatibility in contingent valuation research" funded by the National Science Centre in Poland within grant Preludium 8. I have participated in several other projects, including projects abroad such as "Assessing the impact of format on choice experiment responses" funded by the Support for the Advancement of Scholarship in Canada.

My research has earned several awards and scholarships, including Prime Minister's Award for Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation, Scientific Award 2019 of the Journal "Polityka", stipend "Start 2018" of the Foundation for Polish Science and Oded Stark's Award 2017 for Excellence in Publishing.
