I studied at several different Universities in Poland and Germany, in such cities as Szczecin, Poznan, Marburg and Greifswald. My main fields of expertise are historiography and the history of Pomerania Region. I am also interested in studies of collective memories and historical politics. I am an author of nearly two hundred scientific, popular scientific and journalistic papers and an editor of more than a dozen collective monographs. I wrote also 3 books: „… w tej strażnicy Rzeczypospolitej” Rejon Pamięci Narodowej Cedynia–Gozdowice–Siekierki, Szczecin-Poznań 2007 (“… in this watchtower of the Republic” Cedynia-Gozdowice-Siekierki Region of National Remembrance); Moja mała ojczyzna. Przykładowe scenariusze lekcji oraz uwagi nad nauczaniem historii regionalnej na przykładzie powiatu Gryfino (My little homeland. Examples of lesson’s scenarios and observations on the teaching of regional history by the example of Gryfino county), Chojna 2010 (reprint 2012); Słowiańszczyzna północno-zachodnia w historiografii polskiej, niemieckiej i duńskiej (The North-West Slavs in Polish, German and Danish historiography), Wodzisław Śląski 2019. For the last of the mentioned monographs I was awarded with prestigious Gerard’s Labuda Scientific Award. In 2010 I worked as an assistant lecturer at the Institute of History at the University of Greifswald. I also lectured there at the doctoral studies, which were part of the framework IRTG 1540 “Baltic Borderlands”. Since 2011 I am an assistant professor at the Institute of History at the University of Szczecin. During my work there I organized and coordinated dozens of international projects, including scientific, popular-scientific and cultural events – conferences, debates, study excursions, exhibitions, concerts and fundraisers. Since 2018 I participated in activities of the Historical Commission of Pomerania (Historische Kommission für Pommern e.V.). I am co-founder and president of the Historical and Cultural Association “Terra Incognita” stationed in Chojna (since 2009), and the editor-in-chief of the series of publications entitled “Terra Incognita”. I am also co-founder and president of the Association Akademia Kulice (since 2015). Since 2021 I became the head of the Research Group for History of Pomerania.
