Magdalena Budziszewska, PhD

Associate | University of Warsaw


I am a psychologist and researcher at the Faculty of Psychology, University of Warsaw. My research focus lies in narrative analysis, qualitative methods in psychology, emotions, identity, and development in the life course. I have earlier research expertise in family psychology, social identity, understanding inequality. Besides academic activity, I also had a few years’ experiences as a practitioner, psychotherapist, and school psychologist. Currently, in my research, I focus on experiences, knowledge, and emotions related to changing climate and environment, including climate anxiety and depression, as well as the psychology of collective action. I am also a co-founder of the University of Warsaw Climate initiative. Privately I do love mountains and everything wild.
