Primary Language: Polish, Russian
Other Languages: English, Romanian/Moldovan, Khmer (intermediate)
Born in Moldova and a citizen of Poland, I come from a background in social sciences and Holocaust studies. I have also studied Peace Studies at Chulalongkorn University (Bangkok, Thailand). I have extensive experience in the field of reconciliation and genocide education for diverse audiences in post-conflict societies. My recent experience includes work at the POLIN Museum of the History of the Polish Jews in Warsaw, Poland, as well as cooperation with the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and other museums and sites of memory. I've also worked with organisations countering racism such as the NEVER AGAIN Association. In 2022, I co-chaired the Rotary Peace Projects Incubator, a gathering that aimed to develop peace projects addressing urgent community needs all over the world.
I have many years of experience as an educator working with difficult subjects. I worked in the Education Department at the POLIN Museum where I designed educational programmes and conducted workshops, lectures, and guided tours for various groups of visitors who wanted to learn and understand conflicting historical narratives. I have also participated in numerous events on the topic of dealing with the past as a coordinator, speaker, and facilitator in the region of South- and Southeast Asia. I facilitated dialogue on difficult history and its relevance today among various groups, in support of the rebuilding of relationships, trust, and preventing repeated escalations.
My background and professional experience, as well as knowledge of several languages and cultures, put me in an excellent position to deal with intercultural/international conflict as a mediator.
Also, I have an interest in fostering the pillars of positive peace through mediation and integrating mediation into peace projects.

Field of Mediation: Commercial, Community, Family, Governmental, International, Intercultural, Inheritage, Labor, School
Having the background of a Historian, I am well-accustomed to impartiality and neutrality, as historical research requires them.
Moreover, I believe that with my knowledge and experience I can successfully mediate inter-cultural and cross-border cases, but as I was trained by a group of mediators from various backgrounds, I am qualified to mediate in other fields as well, such as family, commercial or work-place cases.
