Welcome to my website

Welcome and thank you for taking time to visit my website. The idea of launching this website and running a blog came to my mind as a great way to share many interesting observations and experiences that I have come across in my professional life as a researcher and court interpreter. I am a life-long learner who believes that each experience is an opportunity to learn and grow. 

I am an early-career public criminologist with a probably lifelong interest in restorative justice, sociology of punishment, and criminal justice policies in Central and Eastern Europe. After many years of living in London I returned to Poland. I currently reside in Warsaw where I teach Criminology and Criminal Justice, as well as Macrosociology, Sociological Theories, Advanced Qualitative Research at Collegium Civitas. 

 In my academic career I hope to meet and collaborate with fellow researchers, practitioners who want to transfer the criminological knowledge beyond academia, make an impact in the criminal justice settings and bridge the gap between academia and society. My daily mantra is to ‘Be the change that you wish to see in the world’ by Mahatma Gandhi, this is why my work is my greatest passion and motivation to make a difference.

All best wishes,

Ania
