As of 2022, I am a doctoral student at the Brain Imaging Laboratory. I am conducting research on psychotherapy for procrastination under the supervision of Mark Wypych, PhD, in the research project „Treating procrastination – effectiveness and neurobehavioral mechanisms of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Working Time Restriction”. In 2022, I obtained a master’s degree in Cognitive Science at Adam Mickiewicz University, defending my thesis titled „Neural correlates of emotion regulation dysfunction in procrastination” under the supervision of Prof. Jarosław Michałowski. Additionally, I am currently studying Psychology. Outside of LOBI, since 2020 I have been collaborating with Poznań Laboratory of Affective Neuroscience at SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities as a research assistant in research projects covering topics such as electrophysiological correlates of procrastination or the effectiveness of therapeutic interventions.
