PhD in chemical engineering (organic processes, biocatalysis)
A highly motivated, self-directed, creative, and open-minded scientist with research interests in biocatalysis, biotransformations, catalysis, organic chemistry, and materials chemistry. Passionate about science. Focused on gaining new skills, linking and expanding knowledge to other fields (i.e. biotechnology and polymer chemistry). Skilled in planning and performing experiments, laboratory work, characterization of organic compounds and materials, managing of projects as well as optimizing and scaling-up of chemical processes. Experienced in cooperation with industrial companies. Co-author of 15 publications, 1 chapter, 10 patents, 2 patent applications, and a participant of 26 scientific conferences. Co-inventor of an innovative technology of the synthesis of ε-caprolactone. Principal investigator in a research project entitled ‘Studies on the catalytic performance of biocatalysts based on supported ionic liquids’ financed by Polish National Science Centre and contractor in additional 10 R&D and/or scientific projects.
