He has published 2 books and over 30 peer-reviewed papers including articles in journals such as Argumentation, Logic and Logical Philosophy, Pragmatics and Society, AI & Society, and International Review of Pragmatics, co-edited 10 journal issues (including the special issue of the journal Argumentation devoted to "The Polish School of Argumentation"), participated in 2 research projects funded by the Polish National Science Center and delivered 15 invited talks.
