An engineer taking advantage of one of the most interdisciplinary technical studies available - materials engineering. Trying to find a state of equilibrium between scientific and technical work, between theory and application of ideas, usually in favor of the latter, at least in mind.
"IN A WORLD that is buckling under the weight of profit-making, that is overrun by the destructive sirens of Techno-science and the power-hunger of globalization-that new brand of slavery, beyond all that, Friendship exists, Love exists." (Henri Cartier Bresson, 1998)
Education and professional experience
Master engineering degree in Materials Engineering, Advanced Functional Materials specialization with experience in wide variety of data analysis, including X-Ray spectroscopy methods, mechanical testing, XRD, DSC, Scanning Electron Microscopy. Practical experience in electrospinning process using various polymer solutions and solvents.
Research Skills and Interests
Good researcher, if only the topic is interesting enough. Moreover, I am able to force myself towards doing significant portion of doubtful analysis for doubtful reasons. After that I am able to explain it in a way it will not awake any doubts. So maybe it is a skill. I am interested in shaping the knowledge, data analysis and other scientific results in a way to make it available and understandable for more people than just those being inside the topic. I really like electrospinning process, doing it, supervising it, looking at it, how simple it is in its essence, but at the same time on how many parameters it depends.
Current research and related projects
Current research floats around few topics in which the most important are bicomponent, electrospun submicro and nanofibers, degradation of polymers, crystallization of polymers, FTIR spectra deconvolution and everything which can come to mind, connected with that above. Furthermore, I am incorporated in some other investigations, including rhenium diboride films and barite concretes. Not less interesting, however relatively far from my ‘official’ line of action.
