She held postdoctoral fellowships at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, where she worked on the theory of light-matter interactions in the vicinity of photonic nanostructures. Since 2016, she has been working as an assistant professor at the Institute of Physics at the NCU. She leads research projects investigating aspects of quantum optics and nanoscience, funded by the National Science Centre, Poland and the Foundation for Polish Science. She collaborates with scientists from Germany, Spain, Italy and the USA. In 2019, she was awarded a scholarship for outstanding young scientists by the Minister of Science and Higher Education, Poland. She spends her free time with her daughter, with her cats, or travelling.
