Doświadczenie badawcze i dydaktyczne

Prowadzę badania etnograficzne w obszarach moich zainteresowań od 2010 roku, z krótkimi przerwami. W latach 2010-2013 prowadziłam badania dot. wielokulturowości w Warszawie wśród warszawskich organizacji pozarządowych, zbierając materiał do mojej pracy licencjackiej na IEiAK UW. W ramach równoległych studiów na Wydziale Artes Liberales analizowałam dyskursy medialne o organizmach genetycznie modyfikowanych oraz biotechnologii rolniczej, przy okazji mających wówczas miejsce zmian legislacyjnych. W 2013 roku przeprowadziłam się do Kalkuty (Indie), gdzie badałam relacje między tożsamścią, jedzeniem, a historią kolonialną. Po dwóch latach w Indiach, w tym po rocznych studiach magisterskich studiach na Jadavpur University w Kalkucie, wróciłam do Polski z zamiarem podjęcia badań etnograficznych nad społecznościami otwartej współpracy i wymiany wiedzy w Internecie. Pracując jako asystentka w projekcie poświęconym tej tematyce u prof. Dariusza Jemielniaka w Akademii Leona Koźmińskiego, udało mi się uzyskać finansowanie na własny projekt badawczy o wiedzy eksperckiej w Internecie, w ramach programu Diamentowy Grant. Również podczas moich studiów magisterskich na Uniwersytecie Oksfordzkim współpracowałam z badaczami zajmującymi się problematyką komunikacji cyfrowej, w tym głównie tematyką dezinformacji oraz misinformacji.

W ciągu ostatnich lat pracowałam także sporadycznie jako badaczka UX, jak również angażowałam moje umiejętności badawcze we współpracy z organizacjami pozarządowymi.

Moje doświadczenie dydaktyczne sporwadza się do organizowania otwartych spotkań w ramach moich studiów na Uniwersytecie Warszawskim i Uniwersytecie Oksfordzkim, a także działalności edukacyjnej w Stowarzyszeniu Naukowym Collegium Invisibile, którego byłam członkinią-studentką w latach 2012-2019.
