Born near the city of Poznań in Poland, from her earliest years she knew that she wanted to be a scientist. To achieve this, after graduating from the International Baccalaureate high school, she began to study physics at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow, Poland. During her studies she became more and more fascinated by the application of mathematical models for biological systems, which led her to a second M.Sc. degree in Biotechnology at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow. Following her both M.Sc. degrees, Ewa was developing further her interests in biosciences during the research positions in the CICbiomaGune in San Sebastian, Spain, BOKU University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna, Austria and in the Institute for Research in Biomedicine IRB Barcelona, Spain, where she was combining the wet lab experimental practices with computer modelling and simulations. This made her realize that the application of computational framework for biological research is this what she truly loves to do. For that reason, she started the doctoral studies in the Institute for Computational Physics at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, which she completed with the PhD degree. In January 2024 Ewa joined Hilbert Lab as the postdoctoral researcher working on computational modelling and simulations of natural and artificial DNA systems. And if the computational science turns out not to be extreme enough, in her free time she is doing extreme sports: she is going paragliding, climbing via ferratas and hiking 100 km marathons under 24 hours.
