Prof. Małgorzata Jędrzejewska-Szczerska
Małgorzata Jędrzejewska-Szczerska professor at the Department of Metrology and Optoelectronics of Gdańsk University of Technology where she leads the research group in the area of biophotonics and fiber optic sensors. She received her Ph.D. in 2008 and D.Sc. in 2016 from Gdańsk University of Technology.
Her main research area is biophotonics and she focuses on use of low-coherence interferometry, fiber-optic technology and application of optical measurements in biomedicine. Apart from the main research subjects she also deals with the research from the area of: using low-coherence interferometry in metrology, constructing an electronic system supporting behavioural therapy for children with autism, investigating the biocompatibility of new optoelectronic materials with biological tissues.
She has supervised 6 doctoral theses and has published more than 60 research articles and review papers. She was a leader of eight scientific projects and has been awarded at the first edition of INTER competition organized by the Foundation for Polish Science for the implementation of interdisciplinary research (2013-2014) and the winner of the first edition of eNgage competition of the Foundation for Polish Science for the implementation of the work of disseminating research results (2014-2015).
She is an author and a co-author of five patent applications and three innovative solutions. Several technical achievements, of which she was a co-founder, were presented at the exhibitions of inventions and won medals.
For many years she has been involved in activities related to the popularization of science among people from outside the university. I am the co-organizer of a series of actions popularizing science organized at Gdańsk University of Technology as well as in schools and kindergartens in the Pomerania region (Baltic Festival of Science, University of ETI, Open Days, Girls as Engineers at University of Technology). Since 2013 she is a supervisor of the Optical Society of American Student Chapter and BioPhoton Students Science Club at Gdańsk University of Technology. From 2016 she is a OSA Traveling Lecturer.
Prof. Robert Bogdanowicz
Robert Bogdanowicz (born 1976) received his Ph.D. degree with honours in Electronics from the Gdansk University of Technology in 2009. He worked as a post-doc researcher in Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Universität Greifswald Institut für Physik in 2010 and 2011. He has initiated optical emission imaging of muti-magnetron pulsed plasma and contributed to the development of antibacterial implant coatings deposited by high-power impulse magnetron sputtering. He moved back to the Gdansk University of Technology in 2011, as an assistant professor in the Department of Metrology and Optoelectronics. His current domains of interest include selective CVD diamond growth and nanocrystalline diamond doping for environmental and biochemical nanosensors. He is the head of research group and member of the board operating within Advanced Technologies Centre "Pomerania", created in the framework of the Operational Programme for the development of innovative companies. Certified manager IPMA (D) and took part in the first edition of the Top 500 Innovators (Stanford University). In 2011-2015, he was the manager of programs LEADER NCBiR and Sonata NCN. In 2015 he held a scholarship Fulbright Senior Scholar Program at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in the group of prof. William Goddard (Materials and Process Simulation Center) working on hybrid 3D diamond structures.
