About me

I am a work and organizational psychologist with PhD in psychology from SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Poland. During my PhD training, I completed a 6-months predoctoral internship with prof. E. Tory Higgins at Psychology Department, Columbia University in the City of New York, where I investigated the consquences of regulatory fit in the organizational context. I received my post-doctoral training under the supervision of dr Anne Richter, prof. Ulrica von Thiele Schwarz and prof. Henna Hasson, where we investigated workplace factors that lead to sustainable employment. I am also employed as an Assistant Professor at SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Poland. I teach about the psychology of work at the Swedish Program, Stockholm School of Economics.

Together with dr Hanna Augustsson I manage research group for Intervention Processes and Outcomes - PROCOME.

Research description

I specialize in work and organizational psychology. In my research, I examine factors affecting employee adaptation to organizational changes. I am also interested in investigating the psychological consequences of a match between a person and an organization from the perspective of self-regulation. Finally, I examine employee proactivity in the workplace, with particular emphasis on job crafting.
