Curriculum Vitae
I had been graduated from the Mechatronics Department Warsaw University of Technology in 2012 with specialization in photonics engineering. In October 2012 I started PhD studies. I had been awarded with PhD in 2017 (cum laude) for dissertation entitled „Processing and analysis of fringe patterns using the Hilbert-Huang transform for full field optical techniques.” I was appointed in the Institute of Micromechanics and Photonics as researcher (2015-216 principal investigator in the National Science Center project) and assistant (2016-2017) and now I am employed as assistant professor (since 2017). I stayed abroad and conducted scientific collaboration in Xi’ian Jiaotong University (China, 2013), Universitat de Valencia (Spain, 2015 and 2017) and Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain, 2016).
