Magdalena Chułek is a researcher at the Centre of Migration Research, University of Warsaw. She is an anthropologist with experience in designing, organising and carrying out qualitative research. She has implemented projects in Poland, Sudan and Great Britain. In 2012, she was awarded a research grant from the National Science Centre for her research project “Help in Africa’s Slums – Local and Western Strategies in Kibera and Korogocho,” which enabled her to carry out long-term field research in Kenya. Using the method of participant observation during her several-month stay among the studied community in so-called slums, she dealt with the sociocultural process of how these spaces are created. In 2021, at the Faculty of Social Anthropology and Ethnology, Adam Mickiewicz University, she defended her Ph.D. dissertation entitled “How slums are (re)produced: a case study of inhabitants of Kibera and Korogocho in Nairobi”. Currently, her scientific interests comprise forced migrations, environmental migrations and strategies of adapting to changes in the natural environment, especially in refugee camps.
Since May 2023has been acting as International Relations Coordinator . She coordinates the Centre’s activities involving individual and institutional international partners.
