Michal Wróblewski, Poland

Michał Wróblewski is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Philosophy and Social Sciences at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń (Poland). He holds a PhD in political philosophy.

He is interested in environmental STS and sociology of medicine, health and illness.

Dr. Wróblewski is currently working in SUGI project on Food-Water-Energy Nexus called Creating Interfaces (https://creatinginterfaces.eifer.kit.edu/project/ ). He is also conducting research about air pollution in Poland.


Project at IAS-STS: Smog: infrastructures, metrological controversies and neoliberal capture

High level of PM10 and PM2,5 makes Polish air quality one of the worst in Europe. This is related to the fact, that Polish individual energy consumption is based mainly on coal. Although the problem exists for quite long time now (since the 90s), it became a subject of public concern only recently. In my research I want to focus on: 1) controversies around air pollution monitoring practices; 2) the ontology of the smog in different metrological regimes; 3) interrelations between various stakeholders; 4) the role and potential of civic science (especially in the field of quantifying the air pollution).
