I joined the School of Interdisciplinary Studies as a Lecturer in Education in January 2017. Previously, I have worked as an Associate Tutor in the School of Education, University of Glasgow. Originally from Poland, I completed both the Ph.D. (2009- 2013) and MEd (2006- 2007) degrees at the University of Glasgow.
My research interests are in the areas of gender issues, social equality and inclusion. The focus of my research is on personal and collective identities as well as representations of gender on social networking platforms. More recently, I have become interested in examining the social and political implications of implementing smart technologies in urban contexts.
