I am a Research Fellow at the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence at the University of Cambridge, with a background in social communication, theatre studies, and interactive media and performances. In my research, I explore how new technologies (re)shape our understanding of death, loss, grief, and afterlife presence. My work intersects the fields of technology, culture, and thanatology.

For the last ten years, as a coordinator, initiator, or co-leader, I have been running educational, artistic, social, and scientific projects on a local, national, and international level. From 2020-2023, I held an individual grant entitled “Immortality. Contemporary Technocultural Strategies,” funded by the Polish National Science Center. In February 2022, I defended (with distinction) my doctoral thesis.

Recognizing the clear need for interdisciplinary research in the field of (im)mortality technologies, as part of my doctoral dissertation, I developed a theoretical framework for a new sub-discipline called “(im)mortality studies“. These studies encompass three main goals: education, research, and cross-sector and cross-cultural collaboration. I believe that only through interdisciplinary dialogue – built on trust, empathy, and respect for diversity – we can create sustainable and socially responsible technologies related to human (im)mortality.

Since 2020 I have been collaborating with the Leverhulme Center for the Future of Intelligence, University of Cambridge, developing the idea of (im)mortality studies. In 2021 I co-organized and co-moderated (with Professor Stephen Cave) an international conference Digital (Im)mortality. Philosophy, Ethics and Design. I am also a team member of an international scientific consortium ‘Digital Death. Transforming History, Ritual, and Afterlife’ (as a part of EU CHANSE Call on Transformations: Social and Cultural Dynamics in The Digital Age).

In 2024, I was recognized by Schmidt Science as one of the 15 most exceptional global researchers addressing the hard problems of AI within the AI2050 Early Career Fellowship. Over the next two years, I will be conducting research titled “Imaginaries of Immortality in the Age of AI: An Intercultural Analysis,” aiming to understand the context-specific meanings of AI for our relation to detah and immortality.
