I started my studies in University of Wroclaw when I focused on paleoanthropology. After three years I obtained master in biology on Jagiellonian University. During bachelor and master studies my scientific interests mainly concentrated on human evolution and analysis of bones remains. Currently I am a part of the international PUSH project (Palaeoproteomics to Unleash the Study of Human History). In my phd I want to clarify the phylogenetic position of Oreopithecus bambolii and its relations with the Dryopithecinae from Spain.
