Computational Neuroscientist Turned Career & Biz Advisor Helping Individuals & Teams Navigate, Build Value & Subvert Expectations in AI Era

Who I Am & What I Can Do 4U

I am a Computational Neuroscientist turned Career & Business Advisor helping individuals and teams navigate, build value and subvert all expectations in times of AI. I am also a bootstrapping solopreneur, speaker, author, podcaster, and blogger.

I graduated from the College of Inter-Faculty Individual Studies in Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University of Warsaw, Poland, with a triple MS title in Physics, Mathematics, and Psychology.

Later, I obtained a PhD in Computational Neuroscience at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition, and Behavior, in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

In 2018, I launched a public foundation, Stichting Solaris Onderzoek en Ontwikkeling, aiming to help early career researchers find new careers in industry.

In 2019, I founded Ontology of Value:® an R&D, EdTech, and consulting company that creates new tools and practices to help professionals craft their dream careers, as well as helping businesses create synergistic, healthy, and happy teams.

In the company, I developed the flagship project: the data and machine-learning-backed Ontology of Value® Test, a robust tool that helps professionals and students find optimal career paths, and helps teams bring their performance to the next level.

I authored books "What Is out There For Me? The Landscape of Post-PhD Career Tracks" and "How To Self-Navigate in the Job Market and Shine in the Job Interviews."

I also lead a YouTube channel and write two blogs focused on the job market, culture, self- and business development. In my free time, I document my personal journey at

I also offer consultancy to startups, institutions, and VC firms as a Business Advisor and/or Research Consultant. I specialize in optimizing human resources using AI & ML tools and building synergistic teams. I am also skilled at SWOT analysis ad spotting suboptimal conceptual bottlenecks. I also have thousands of PhDs in STEM in my network, ready for due diligence in IT, biotech & engineering. We can save your business millions and spare your team years of work!

Even though I chose to work in the open job market, I am still a researcher at heart and believe in the compatibility of science and entrepreneurship.

My Philosophy

I believe in the compatibility of science and business. I use my knowledge in Neuroscience to better understand human resources and the evolution of the job market, and to develop new training programs.

As summary, I am a "full-stack" Career & Business Advisor. With a PhD in Computational Neuroscience, I use my analytical mind and knowledge about the brain and psychology combined with empathy to understand my customers, build innovative tools for self-navigating in the market, summon teams of experts for due diligence, and solve complex business cases.

I work at flat hourly rates, or, exceptionally, for shares in the project.
