I am a physical geographer interested in paleolimnology. Most of my work is focused on varved lake sediments and their fascinating potential for reconstructions of natural and man-made changes of the environment. I use sedimentological, geochronological and geochemical methods to piece together complex stories recorded in lake sediments.

I am currently involved in several projects that investigate the mechanisms of varve formation in lakes, preservation of climate signal in lake sediments and reconstructions of environmental change in northeastern Poland.

I am a geographer working on lacustrine sediments, in particular annually laminated sediments. My scientific interests refer mainly to the environmental reconstructions based on geochemical analyses and varve chronology.

In my current research project I am using annually laminated sediments from lakes of northern Poland for tracing volcanic ash dispersal in this part of Europe.

I am a geologist interested in using biogenic sediments for paleoenvironmental reconstructions, especially in terms of human impact on aquatic ecosystems. Besides, I am interested in renewable sources of energy as well as geology of ore deposits and mineral resources.

Currently, I am involved in the project focused on tracking climate signals preserved in annually laminated lake sediments of northeastern Poland.

I am a physical geographer interested in paleolimnology and sedimentology.
Currently, my research focus on modern sedimentation processes in different lakes of northern Poland. I put special interest on the role of catchments and their impact on sedimentation rates and sediment composition.

I have graduated from AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow with a Master’s Degree in environmental protection. So far, my research focused on using microorganisms in bioremediation processes and using geochemical indicators in assessing environmental pollution.

Currently, I am involved in the project focused on tracking climate signals preserved in annually laminated lake sediments of northeastern Poland.

I am a physical geographer interested in lakes and sedimentation processes. I am especially interested in varve chronologies and geochemical cycles in lake systems. Additionally, using modern visualization methods, I try to achieve beauty in data visualization.

My PhD thesis is a part of larger project aiming at quantitative reconstruction of climate change in northeastern Poland.
