I am a political scientist, freelance journalist and correspondent based in Colombo, New Delhi and Warsaw.

With 11 years of professional experience in media, I have previously worked for newspapers, magazines, radio stations and Internet news outlets. I cover South Asia, science & space industry, media industry and more. I have a Master’s degree from the University of Warsaw, my dissertation (A) regarded the external propaganda of North Korea.

My articles have been published in several titles, mostly in my native Poland, including the Wprost weekly, Focus – a popular science magazine, Press  a media trade magazine, the Polish edition of the Bloomberg Businessweek, Quartz – a digital global business publication, and the Times of India.

I have won the Leopold Unger Award (2016) granted by Marie Curie-Sklodowska University.

I write in both Polish and English and believe in slow, responsible, quality journalism, questioning more and digging deeper. These days, it is the easiest to spot me in Sri Lanka where I am working on a non-fiction book.
