Biography

My background is in criminal law and comparative law. I hold a Master degree in Law from the University of Lodz (Poland), a Master degree in International Relations- German studies from the University of Lodz (Poland) and a Master of Laws degree (LL.M) from the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main (Germany). In January 2020, I defended my Ph.D. thesis entitled “Liability of collective entities in Poland in the view of the German long-standing debate on corporate criminal liability”, at the European University Viadrina - Center for Interdisciplinary Polish Studies - in Frankfurt an der Oder (Germany).


Since December 2016 I have been working as a senior and project researcher at the Faculty of Law, University of Turku. Since 2019, I am affiliated with Tel Aviv University, as visiting researcher in the ERC research project TraffLab: Labor Perspective to Human Trafficking. Currently, at UTU I am funded by the Academy of Finland, for a research project focused on ‘Algorithmic Agencies and Law (AALAW) and the research consortium Ethical Use of AI’ (Etairos).

Research

My research interests lie at the intersection of comparative criminal law, sociology of law, dialectics of law-making, corporate crimes and social harm. I am especially interested in the regulation of corporate power and in the challenges it poses to traditional criminal law approaches. In my dissertation, I revisit the dilemma of corporate criminal liability as a regulatory response to corporate wrongdoing.

In Turku, I have been active in several comparative projects, including the research project on the alternative, non-penal approaches to tackle serious and organized crime as well as my individual research project founded by the Scandinavian Research Council for Criminology (NSfK) “The Formation of Labor Exploitation – Polish Workers in in Finland, Norway, and Sweden.” In this project, I examine the misuse of labor rights in a broader context of state-corporate crime scholarship.

In the framework of AALAW and Etairos, I expand both my doctoral research on regulated self-regulation and my general research interest in social harms enabled and facilitated in the state-corporate context.
