In February 2019, I joined Python for biologists - a course organised by the Nencki Institute for Experimental Biology, Polish Academy of Sciences.

In January 2019, I attended a workshop on eye-tracking data analysis in R at the SWPS University, Warsaw (lecturer: T. Krejz).

In December 2018 and January 2019, I attended two courses on statistics and data analysis and visualisation in R (intermediate level), organised by Labmasters company.

As a part of my EEG training, I had a chance to participate in the Birmingham ERP Boot Camp with Steve Luck and Emily Kappenman in Birmingham, 17-20 July 2018. There I perfected my knowledge concerning EEG data collection, preprocessing and analysis, which helped me work on my Zurich database.

In July 20018, I attended a very interesting summer school on Multiple approaches to the perception of speech (MAPS) in Groningen. We talked about speech perception and audiological pathologies, looking at EEG, fMRI, TMS, fNIRs, eye-tracking and pupillometry.

In May 2018, I attended a statistical workshop on GAMMs and functional analysis (Analysing Curves, Manchester, 29-13 May 2018).

Also in May 2018, I attended a Python programming class (basics, Thayabaran Kathiresan, Zurich).

In December 2017 I attended a mixed models in R course provided by Sandra Schwab (Zurich University).

In November 2017, I attended the  workshop on Speaker Individuality in Voice: Human and Machine Processing (Zurich, 3 November 2017).

In October 2017 I attended a statistics workshop entitled Statistical standards for scientific discovery in linguistics: a practical introduction (Zurich, 4-6 October 2017).

In the summer of 2016 I had a chance to participate in the Aix Summer School on Prosody - Methods in Prosody and Intonation Research: Data, Theories, Transcription (Aix en Provence, 6-9 September) during which I learned a lot about the experimental methods in prosody research, especially psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic approaches. All this happened in a great scientific centre, with the best of specialists and in the best company (over 150 participants!)
