Interests

My expertise concentrates on the problems of adaptation of agriculture to climate change, including the issue of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere and development of bioeconomy as the response to these problems. During my professional life I have been working not only in the field of science, but I am also involved as an expert in the European Union Common Agricultural Policy implementation in Poland at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, and Strategy of Adaptation of Polish Agriculture to Climate Change for the Ministry of Environment.
