I have been educated at the Institute of Archaeology, University of Warsaw. Since 2011 I prepare my Ph.D. thesis about Neolithic of Eastern Sicily. I also participated in Post graduated Artistic School at Warsaw in the field of interior design and in 2000 in West London Business College.
I have been participating in many archaeological expeditions (Palazzolo Acreide, Portopalo, Fiumedinisi, Casmene all in Sicily, and as well in Novae, Bulgaria and some archaeological sites in Poland). I took a part in few conferences, where I presented papers and posters (last one: poster New, prehistoric finds from Costa dei Grani (Noto), Study Convention: Before Thapsos, Museum P. Orsi, Syracuse, paper SiciliAntica Association and its activities for the popularization of education and archeology, International Conference: Archaeological Heritage. Methods of Education and Popularization, Warsaw, both in December 2011). Because I live in Noto, Sicily I also cooperate with Museum in Noto and Superintendent BB.CC.AA. of Syracuse. I am member of SiciliAntica, Association for Protection and Enhancement of Cultural and Rural Heritage.
