I graduated Biotechnology with a specialty of Genetic diagnostics at the Faculty of Agriculture and Bioengineering at the University of Life Sciences in Poznan. During my studies I did scientific internships at Department of Biotechnology at Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences in Norway and The Institute of Molecular Genetics of Montpellier in France. From 2014 I started PhD studies at the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry PAS’s PhD Program. My PhD thesis titled ‘Characterization of chosen (epi)-genetic aspects in high myopia in Polish patients’ was completed at Department of Cancer Genetics at the Institute of Human Genetics PAS, where in 2020 I obtained the PhD in medical and health sciences. My scientific interest is focused on environmental, genetic and epigenetic factors in etiology of school and high myopia in Polish patients.
In 2019 I obtained the scholarship from European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) for the scientific internship at Department of Epidemiology and Department of Ophthalmology at Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, where I broadened my knowledge and skills in research on myopia epidemiology and pathogenesis.
Currently, I am conducting my own research project concerning the role of DNA methylation in the etiology of high myopia in Polish children.
