Education and academic career 

In 1983 I obtained the certificate of secondary education and, in the same year I began to study at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Faculty of History. 

My subject was history of art, which I graduated from in 1989. Meanwhile I began the second subject - archaeology, which I graduated from in 1991. In both I have the M. A. degrees (with distinctions): in history of art basing on the thesis concerning the Bronze Age Cycladic female figurines, their aesthetic values and symbolical meaning; in archaeology basing on the thesis concerning figural motifs in the local made barbarian pottery from Central and Western Europe dated to pre-Roman and Roman Iron Age.

Trying to apply the methods of both art history and archaeology in 1991 I started the post-graduated study within the AMU fellowship programme and I got the occupation as a research student at the Institute of Prehistory. My doctoral thesis developed from my M.A. work and dealt with the figurative representations in the pottery of various Germanic societies of Middle and Western Europe dated to the pre-Roman, Roman and Migration periods. In 1997 I offended my dissertation and I obtained Ph.D. degree (basing on my doctoral thesis I published the book entitled Figurative Motifs in the Pottery of Germanic Background, Poznan 1999).

In 1997 I got the permanent occupation at the Institute of Prehistory, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, as an Assistant Professor. From this year, apart from prehistory, I am involved in the new specialisation at the Poznan Institute, it is the Mediterranean archaeology that since 2004 has been officially called the Oriental and Classical Archaeology. 

In 2000 I have been awarded by President of AMU for my achievements in research work. 
In 2011 I have been awarded by President of AMU for my educational achievements.
In 2013 I have got Medal of Commission of National Education.

Since September 2005 till August 2016 I performed a duty as a deputy director to students and educational affairs of the Institute of Prehistory AMU. 

Research interests

My principal research and scholarly interest lies currently in the art and visual cultures of the ancient Mediterranean world, particularly in the Greek, Etruscan and Roman art and archaeology, historical interpretation of ancient visual representation and its relationship with social and political culture. I also have interest in the Iron Age iconography, mutual relationship between the Classical World and the Barbarian Europe, interdisciplinary approaches to art history and archaeology, current theoretical frameworks and their practical application in the history of ancient art and archaeology.
