Presently, I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the Department of Physics and Principal Investigator at the Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (CNAN), both at the University of Bath, UK. After obtaining my M.Sc. in Material Engineering from Adam Mickiewicz University (Poznan, Poland) in 2007 and Ph.D. in Physics from Lancaster University in 2011, I continued working at the latter as a postdoctoral researcher. I was awarded the University of Bath Prize Fellowship in 2012 and took it up at the Department of Physics of the University of Bath from March 2013 to February 2015. I have been promoted to the post of Lecturer in March 2015. In June 2017, I was awarded the IoP Maxwell Medal for "the outstanding contributions to the understanding of graphene, in particular groundbreaking studies that have addressed its optical properties, lattice deformations, electronic structure, and electron transport". For more information about me, have a look at my CV.
