She is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Geomorphology and Quarternary Geology of the Institute of Geography of the University of Gdańsk. As a member of Professor’s Wojciech Tylmann research team she carries out the National Science Center’s Sonatina Project, which aims to study long-term interactions between wildfires, climate, vegetation and human impact. Dr Bonk searches for factors affecting the occurrences of wildfires in northern Poland throughout the last 2000 years, based on macro and micro-carbons found in lake sedimentations.
