I am an ecologist and evolutionary biologist with extensive experience in laboratory work. My research has been focused on sexual selection, host-parasite interaction, genotype-environment interaction, differentiation of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) or genetic epistasis. I have worked with both model (nematode Caenorhabditis elegans) and non-model organisms (ground squirrel, red deer, bank vole). For ten years, I was associated with the Molecular Ecology Laboratory at the Institute of Environmental Sciences at the Jagiellonian University. During this time, I gained a lot of experience in molecular techniques: from DNA isolation through amplicon libraries preparation to high-throughput sequencing. Currently, as a member of the newly formed group, I support research on insect symbionts.
