About me
A graduate of the Institute of English Studies, University of Warsaw, I obtained my Ph.D. from the Faculty of Modern Languages, University of Warsaw. I have been a member of the faculty of IFA, University of Wroclaw, since the beginning of my professional career, but I have also taught linguistics at the University of Warsaw and, for a year, at the State University of New York at Stony Brook.

My professional interests focus on phonology, phonetics, and - more recently - on endangered languages.
As a teacher I specialize in phonology, teaching the pronunciation of English and accent reduction. I have also taught a number of other linguistic courses, such as introduction to linguistics, contrastive grammar or historical grammar.
I have been the Head of Research Centre for Phonetics and Phonology at IFA UWr since its establishment in 2012.

Apart from doing linguistics and teaching the pronunciation of English, I enjoy listening to music (most of the time what would be called classical music - especially by the people who enjoy other kinds of music), reading about history, psychology, listening to English audiobooks and BBC 4 podcasts and learning other foreign languages--for pleasure. I also enjoy swimming and, if I have an opportunity, sailing (I am a yacht skipper).
