Thank you for visiting my webpage. I am a Ph.D. candidate in International History and Economics at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva and the 2016/17 Princeton University Library Research Grant recipient. I study economic and financial history of the 19th and early-20th centuries.
Before starting my doctorate I completed a Masters degree in International Economics here in Geneva. Before that I studied Economics and Geography at the London School of Economics and Political Science. In between I've also worked at the ECB within the Directorate General Research Monetary Policy Research Department and interned at the National Bank of Poland at the Macroprudential Policy Bureau at the Economic Institute. Amongst others I did research assistantship at the CEP: The ESRC Research Centre for Economic Performance and at the Swiss National Science Foundation funded Sinergia team for The Macroeconomics of Financial Crises. Moreover, in 2015 I have been in charge of organizing the 2015 Conference of The Thomas Guggenheim Program in the History of Economic Thought. On a day to day basis I collaborate on a variety of projects with Prof. Marc Flandreau (some of that work is listed on RePec, you can check it out here.)
In addition to my academic work, funnelling my creativity and building up on my internship at Saatchi & Saatchi, in 2014 I funded Stinky Ninja Productions - a “digital dream factory” specialized in graphic design, branding, creative marketing and digital solutions. My raison d'être being to become a modern day “Renaissance woman,” I challenge myself on a daily basis, engaging in new pursuits, adding on to my plethora of hobbies, ranging from self-taught piano, saxophone and cello, kirigami, Richelieu guipure and oil painting, via poetry, foreign languages, or MIT OpenCourseWare courses in history, literature and science. A medical doctor manqué I also try to stay on top of latest developments in immunology and gastroenterology.
The unknown fascinates me. I revere life. Every day, embracing Thoreau, I endeavor to “live deep, (...) live deliberately, and suck out all the marrow of life.”
