    Citizenship/Residence: EU (Italy)

    I am a Ph.D. candidate in Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Science at University of Rome, La Sapienza, and I am expected to get my Ph.D. degree by November 2017. 

    For few years I lived in Poland, and then moved to Italy where I received my education and completed my University studies in Physics. Recently, I spent three months for a scientific project in Paris, at the Astrophysical Institute of Paris (IAP), collaborating with professor Marta Volonteri. I also attended several international Ph.D. schools and many international workshops, contributing with scientific talks on the topic of my research. As a part of my recent scientific activity as Ph.D. student, I also published my papers on the most important peer-reviewed scientific journals of Astrophysics.

    I am used to work in international and multi-ethnic environments, in which collaboration and positive-interaction play a fundamental role for the success of a project. My Polish-Italian roots have enriched my open-mindedness, giving me different socio-cultural point of views.

    My scientific theoretical background allows me to approach every kind of problem in a very versatile and adaptable way, with a strong analytical attitude and excellent problem solving skills. I am an independent fast learner, with strong capability to collaborate in a work-group. In fact, my scientific education, together with scientific advisory teaching as well as active participation to dissemination events, improved my communicational skills, allowing me to interact with different cultures.

    I am proficient in three languages (Italian, Polish, and English) and I’m a beginner in French and Spanish. As part of my research I also professionally programmed in FORTRAN, Python and I have some knowledge in Octave. I am capable to work on different operating systems as Unix, MAC OS  and Windows. For my publishing activity I have learned to use different text editing tools (Open Office, Wordpad, LaTex) and I am currently enrolled in a Machine Learning Course provided by Standford University.

    I have always struck for excellence: I graduated cum laude in Astrophysics and I have been awarded as top 3 student in the Physics Department of La Sapienza. I also won many awards for my academic results, and I was able, along my bachelor and master studies, to get scholarships from the University. To complement my financial independence, I have always been open to work as part-time collaborator since I was 20 years old; moving across different and complementary experiences and environments allowed me to develop a strong and rigorous self-organization ability.

    I am a very active person, I play rugby at a competitive level, sport that has taught me the importance of team-working, and I have been the coach of men’s rugby team, improving my coordination and team-leading skills, without any gender-oriented problems. I am friendly and open person, and I love challenging myself in learning new skills. I am a critical thinker and always question dogma, status quo and the conventional way of doing things.

    I’m currently looking for a new working experience to expand my knowledge and capabilities and I think I am a skillful person in which to invest. I am available to relocate and to travel. I think I can be a good candidate for position in which my scientific experience and knowledge conceal with my communicational and interpersonal skills.
