Voices of Graduates and Students
I am an adjunct professor at the East Asian Research Unit, World Economy Research Institute, SGH Warsaw School of Economics.
I graduated from the SGH Warsaw School of Economics. Pursuing my interest in Japanese culture, I simultaneously engaged in Japanese Studies at the University of Warsaw.
As a Japanese Ministry of Education scholarship holder, I became a research student at the Okayama University and following a year of very positive experience at its Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences, I decided to enroll in a PhD course at the same unit.
I recollect that time as crucial to identifying some of my key academic interests and – from a more private standpoint – a period of forming long-lasting bonds with my fellow students from around the world, as well as with my mentors. I completed my PhD in 2012.
Doing that while having and raising my first child is what I consider a personal success and the “sunny land” of Okayama feels like a second home to me. After moving back home to Poland, for several years I combined both my fields of expertise working as an economist at the Embassy of Japan in Warsaw. My current research concentrates on the problem of interregional migrations, labor market and current socio-economic and political issues in Japan.
