I am PhD student at Catholic University of Lublin, Faculty of Social Sciences, Social Philosophy Department, Poland.

At UTS I am going to undertake research on the Concept of social semiotics in terms of Sydney Semiotic Circle, a grop that worked in Sydney in the 80's and beginning of the 90's. I have a MSc in Sociology. My research interests are focused on social semiotics as a method of exploration of social reality, visual communication and visual sociology, everyday life's sociology and branding. At University I teach the following classes: Introduction to Social Philosophy and Marketing; Market Research.
For the last two years I've also worked as a brand consultant in advertising agency.
