Personal profile


I am a researcher in the field of bioethics.

I have a background in biotechnology (MEng, Warsaw University of Life Sciences) and worked in molecular biology labs at the Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics (Warsaw). I then earned a Master of Bioethics (University of Leuven) and PhD in Law, Science and Technology (University of Bologna). I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Research Ethics and Bioethics at the Uppsala University. I also was a visiting scholar at the Society and Ethics Research Group at the Wellcome Sanger Institute (Cambridge, UK).

My research has mainly focused on ethical, legal and social issues in genomics. I use both empirical and theoretical approaches to analyse emerging problems. I conducted studies on, among other things, informed consent of gamete donors in a genome editing study, use of consumers’ data by consumer genomics companies, and readability of  consent forms for genomic sequencing.  I also participated in designing the Your DNA Your Say survey  (www.YourDNAYourSay.org). Currently I am leading a project on AI in healthcare funded by the Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare.
