Current project

My PhD project is a part of Human Bodily Micromotion in Music Perception and Interaction research project, which aims at studying subtle body motion that happens during music listening, mainly with the use of motion capture technology. Currently I explore several topics that are related to psychoacoustics and interpersonal differences in music perception. My goal is to provide new data and perspectives that could enable answering a broader question of who, why and when have an urge to move their bodies to music, and to what extent such movement can be controlled. I am particularly interested in the mechanism of entrainment to musical rhythm and its evolutionary origins.

Background

I have a masters degree in psychology from the University of Warsaw, with specialization in Social Experimental Psychology. The topic of my master thesis was "The effects of musical training in early childhood on brain structure and cognitive performance". From 2013 to 2016 I was working in a research team based at the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology at the Polish Academy of Sciences (Laboratory of Psychophysiology and Laboratory of Brain Imaging), where we were examining neural correlates of developmental dyslexia and general linguistic development in 6-11 year old children. I also hold a professional piano diploma from a state music school in my hometown in Poland, which I attended for 11 years. Additionally, I have spent some time studying sound engineering, in order to couple my knowledge of music performance and psychology with a more technical understanding of sound as a physical phenomenon.

Outside of the academia I am interested in nature preservation, photography and folk music, particularly in archaic polyphony and other traditional singing forms from Slavic regions of Europe.
