Research

I graduated from a doctoral programme at the Faculty of Applied Linguistics of the University of Warsaw in 2013 and defended the doctoral thesis entitled “Representations of Specialist Knowledge in Dictionaries for Translators”, devoted to models of dictionaries which would facilitate translation of legal texts, written under the supervision of Prof. Jerzy Lukszyn. I was granted the degree of Ph.D. in Humanities with a specialisation in Linguistics in 2014. In October 2015 I became Assistant Professor (adiunkt) at the Institute of Specialist and Intercultural Communication of the University of Warsaw.
