I am Researcher at the Department of History and Civilization. My main research interest is the new diplomatic history in the eighteenth century, particularly the European-Ottoman cross-confessional encounters, commercial exchanges and frontier zones of contact.

Before coming to the EUI, I studied history and languages in Kraków, Jena, Gießen, and Berlin. During my studies, I worked in Kraków at the Jagiellonian University Museum (Collegium Maius) while co-operating simultaneously with publishing houses. After my graduation, I absolved a European internship program at the Centre for Historical Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Berlin (CBH PAN). I worked there for the exhibitions ‘My Berlińczycy! Wir Berliner!’ documenting Polish emigration to Berlin from the early modern period until today.

From 2009 until 2012, I was Researcher at the Justus Liebig University in Gießen. After joining the EUI, I was Visiting Researcher at the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (liaison professor Nathalie Clayer) and concurrently teaching assistant at Sciences Po (both from September until December 2016). I also visited numerous summer courses in Turkish and Ottoman Turkish.

I taught Polish history at the Justus Liebig University in Gießen (with Markus Krzoska) and Ottoman history at Sciences Po (with David Do Paço).

I am a member of the Comité International des Études Pré-Ottomanes et Ottoman, the Arbeitskreis Militärgeschichte e. V., the Premodern Diplomats Network, the Network for the New Diplomatic History, the Association for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies and the Microhistory Network.
