About me

I got my PhD in algebraic geometry from University of Warsaw on June 2017 under supervision of Prof. Adrian Langer and Dr Piotr Achinger. Starting in September, I'll work as a research scientist in the Chair of Algebraic Geometry of École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne led by Prof. Zsolt Patakfalvi.
My CV can be found here .
