I am a researcher in Department of Mechanics, Materials Science and Engineering at Wrocław University of Science and Technology, Wroclaw, Poland. I also give lectures and exercises for students. Till 2018 I am a co-author of more than 70 scientific papers in recognized journals and reports for industrial partners. I have participated in more than 14 national and international projects. I am a member of Polish and International Societies (PSTAM, ISGS, IAAM, SIMS).

I completed Ph.D. in Materials Engineering at AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow and master studies at Wroclaw University of Science and Technology on two faculties: Chemistry and Mechanical Engineering. My research interests lie in area of modification of surface properties by applying a sol-gel coatings, with a focus on methodology of synthesis and thin film metrology. In recent years, I have focused on adjusting the properties of the coating to the working environment according to industries demand. I have active collaboration with biologist, mechanics and chemists on solving interdisciplinary problems as influence of coating’s chemical composition on mechanical properties or effect of sol-gel biocoatings on stem cell response, and also wettability parameters.

From 2014 I am a Vice Head of the Department of Mechanics, Materials Science and Engineering. I build the strategy based on interdisciplinary development driven by collaboration with industry and implement organizational structure of the Department. The Department’s motto is Culture of the experiment.
