Favourite thing to do in science: Coming up with new ideas to solve problems- it's a like a constant puzzle quest!
About Me: I'm from Poland, have lived in 6 countries, and travelled to over 30. Since 2014 Dublin has been my home.
I love travelling and spending time outdoor, so I enjoy Ireland a lot thanks to fast access to both mountains and seaside. In my free time I also do various DIY projects, from sewing to furniture upgrades.
My Work: I am a research scientist at Nokia Bell Labs. We build communication networks to connect everyone on the planet (and beyond!). My job is to automate the networks and make them more intelligent.
You could connect devices via fiber, or copper or don’t use wires at all. I make sure that the wireless devices, like your smartphone, laptop or sensors that you may have at home, connect to the right network and provide you with a good experience. To do that, there is a lot of decisions to take on the network side, too many for any human to process fast. That’s why my task is to propose novel solutions that help automate them.
My Typical Day: Every day is different but there are some clear patterns. The mornings I usually spend discussing the projects and challenges with my colleagues, while in the afternoon I like to do any creative work and writing (code, articles, patents). There are also many coffee breaks- these are the best for brainstorming!
