I am a freelance journalist covering Central Europe and the Balkans, and currently based in Bratislava, Slovakia.
I am a regular contributor to Euronews, UK-based energy news agency Interfax Global Energy and Poland's most widely circulated weeklies Polityka and Tygodnik Powszechny. My work appears also in World Politics Review, OZY Magazine, Foreign Affairs, POLITICO Europe, EU Observer, The National Interest, The Hill, Prospect Magazine, and newspapers in almost all Central European countries.
I have reported from Bratislava, Bucharest, Budapest, Prague, Sofia, Warsaw, Vienna, Vilnius, Zagreb, Washington DC and western Ukraine, covering a wide range of topics: from the rise of the far right in Slovakia, through the gas market in Central Europe, to the problems of the Muslim community in Austria, among many others. I have conducted numerous interviews with politicians and experts, including former prime ministers of the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia.
Earlier, for four years (2012—2016) I worked at the Polish Institute of International Affairs (PISM), a Warsaw-based think tank, which was awarded the 2015 Best Think Tank in Central and Eastern Europe by the University of Pennsylvania. I went through the career ladder from analyst, through senior analyst, to head of the newly established Central Europe Programme. I also held individual fellowships in Budapest and Bratislava (twice), and a Kosciuszko Foundation Fellowship at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University in Washington DC.
Apart from native Polish, I speak English, Slovak, Hungarian and French. I have been interviewed by the BBC World Service, Voice of America, The Guardian, Associated Press, and many local news and radio agencies.
