Overview

My main research interests are:

1. the relations between contemporary space, politics, and economy, especially in countries undergoing socio-political transformation;
2. sense-oriented practices of architecture and design;
3. notions of nature and ecology in contemporary architecture and design and their ideological implications;

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the department of Art, Art History, and Visual Studies at Duke University. My dissertation is entitled "Political Postmodernisms: Architecture in Chile and Poland, 1970–1990."

In 2013 I earned a Ph.D. from the Art History department, University of Warsaw, defending my dissertation, "Living Architectures: Biological Analogies in Architecture at the End of the Twentieth Century" (director: Waldemar Baraniewski).
