I am a digital anthropologist that specialises in online research, with a decade of fieldwork experience. I am passionate about improving existing knowledge infrastructures, as well as digital and new tech policies. I work as a researcher at the Department of Management in Networked and Digital Societies at the Kozminski University in Warsaw, where I am conducting a pre-doc study on multi-platform knowledge production (2016 – 2020), focusing on networked information prod-usage practices. As a part of this project I study instances of online misinformation about health and nutrition, and open collaboration communities. I am also a PhD candidate in cultural anthropology at the Institute of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology, University of Warsaw, where I study social reception of Lyme disease (borreliosis) in Poland (Preludium BIS funding scheme, 2020-2023). More recently I have joined the POPREBEL research team as a digital ethnographer to support their study of populism in Central and Easter Europe.
I am also a 2020-2022 coordinator of the EASA Medical Anthropology Young Scholars network. Find out more about our work here.
I have previously worked with the ComProp project at the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford, of which I am an alumna. Besides communication and misinformation studies, I am also interested in grass-root activism, identity politics, and public discourses on technology. Generally speaking, my research belongs to the category of science and technology studies, as well as medical and digital anthropology.
My other published work concerns topics of urban transformation and identity politics in post-socialist and post-colonial contexts. Over the years I have also actively cooperated with different NGOs as a social researcher.
