My primary research interests span dependability and security of computer and communication networks. I am particularly interested in solving real-world problems using advanced mathematical models and tools, such as optimization theory.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Telecommunications at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków, Poland. I received my B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees from the same University in 2012, 2013, and 2017, respectively. In 2015, I joined an international research team for four months as a Visiting Ph.D. Student at NTNU (Trondheim, Norway) where I worked with Prof. Bjarne E. Helvik and with Telenor Research on dependability of Software-Defined Networks. In summer 2018, I was a Visiting Research Fellow in the Communication Technologies group led by Prof. Stefan Schmid at the Faculty of Computer Science, University of Vienna, Austria. Between 2018 and 2020, I was a member of the Management Committee of the "Resilient Communication Services Protecting End-User Applications From Disaster-Based Failures" European research initiative (COST CA15127 Action, RECODIS). In March 2020, I joined the Networked Systems Research Laboratory led by Professor Dimitrios Pezaros at the University of Glasgow, School of Computing Science, Glasgow, Scotland. During a four-month appointment as a Research Associate and a member of the laboratory staff, I started an ongoing research collaboration related to network reliability and security.

In 2009, I graduated from the Władysław Żeleński State Secondary School of Music in Kraków, Poland, where I learned to play organ under the guidance of Professor Andrzej Białko (the second instrument: piano). From 1999 to 2003, I participated in multiple research-oriented activities organized by the Polish Children's Fund. As a member of the Boys' Choir of the Karol Szymanowski Philharmonic in Kraków between 1996 and 2003, I took part in several concerts organized in different countries in Europe. I have a passion for aviation, especially sailplanes and air traffic control. I am a licensed sailplane pilot and a member of the Leopold Kwiatkowski Aero Club in Łososina Dolna, Poland.
