My name is Magda Zena. I am a doctor of psychology, a researcher, a consultant, and a data scientist. At present, my work is focused on research and data science within digital mental health. My recent projects include research on depression, anxiety, habit formation, decision-making, and mindfulness techniques. In the past, I worked at the university where I taught psychology, psychometrics, and statistics. I also worked as a consultant for media and an assessment centre.
In 2012, after I completed my doctorate in psychology, I started a private psychological practice. Since then I have been seeing private clients struggling with critical life transitions, depression, anxiety, and personality disorders. I have also provided training, coaching, and management consulting for big and small companies. I am a chartered member of the British Psychological Society (cPsychol, registration no 504605).
In my free time, I play the piano, dance, run, and volunteer for the causes I care about. In 2012 during anti-ACTA protests, I was advising the Prime Minister of Poland not to ratify the treaty. Recently I have organised a concert to raise funds for charities that help refugees at the Polish borders. I am an active member of Effective Altruism and I measure my actions against how much good they do.
