Open-Access Textbooks

For many students around the world, educational resources are hardly affordable. Therefore, I have decided that my recent books should remain independent, non-profit, open-access projects. Whilst, for some people, the presence of a “designer tag” from a major publisher might still be a proxy for quality, it is my hope that they will prove useful to those who seek knowledge for knowledge’s sake. Please spread the word about these projects. Thank you.

Current Teaching

I am currently a lecturer at Deakin University (Melbourne, Australia).

In 2023, I am responsible for the following courses:

  • SIT220/SIT731 Data Wrangling (see my open-access textbook) – Trimester 1 (autumn) and 3 (summer)

  • SIG731 Data Wrangling (online; “Great Learning” India) – Trimester 3


In the past, I created and taught various courses related to programming, algorithms, computational statistics, and data analysis at Warsaw University of Technology (for 13 years). I wrote a couple of textbooks in Polish related to these.

I’m particularly proud of the Golden Chalk of the second degree (Silver Chalk? 😆) that I was awarded in 2019. Thanks. 🥰

I was one of the principal initiators/designers of the first data science course (both at undergraduate and postgraduate level) in Poland.

I also taught very intensive and demanding (in a good way) R- and Python-for-data-analysis courses at Data Science Retreat in Berlin (for 5 years), amongst others.
