I'm a Postdoctoral Fellow at UC Berkeley, where I'm affiliated with the Kavli Center for Ethics, Science, and the Public. In the fall of 2024, I will start as a Postdoctoral Associate at MIT.

Previously, I did a PhD in Philosophy at Princeton University, a BPhil in Philosophy at Oxford University and a BA in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Warwick University.

I have eclectic philosophical interests. My current research focuses on issues at the intersection of value theory and the ethics of technology, but I have also published articles in epistemology, political philosophy, and the history of philosophy.

Here is my CV.

I am originally from a small town near Warsaw, Poland. My first name, Michał, is pronounced there 'Me-how', but I go by the standard English 'Michael'.

In my spare time, I enjoy endurance sports, especially running. I train daily, and race marathons and ultramarathons. On the ultramarathon side, I've done several 50Ks, one 50-miler, two 100K races, and a 100-miler.
