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 an European internship programme at the Centre for Historical Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Berlin (CBH PAN) where I worked 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 member of the Comité International des Études Pré-Ottomanes et Ottoman, the Arbeitskreis Militärgeschichte e. V. and the Premodern Diplomats Network.
