Karolina is a PhD candidate at the Faculty of History, Jagiellonian University in Krakow. In her field of study she is mainly dealing with early examples of architecture, both vulnerable and long lasting, built during the formative stage of the Egyptian state.

Since 2008 she has been involved in the research of the Polish Archaeological Expedition to the Eastern Nile Delta conducted at Tell el-Farkha (the Western Kom). Karolina is a field manager for the Tel Erani, Israel expedition and from 2011 an architect in the Paphos Agora Project – Jagiellonian University research on Cyprus.

Karolina is an archaeologist and architect who tries to combine her both specializations. She conducts virtual reconstructions of architectural finds and 3D models of structures and small objects.
