Background and activities

The major topic of my PhD research are thermal properties of fenestration products. Both new constructions and historic solutions are investigated by experiments and numerical simulations. Other research interests are energy efficiency and thermal comfort in buildings.
I have background in heat exchange and thermodynamic. I graduated from bachelor's and master's programme at Warsaw University of Technology. My second Master's degree was completed jointly at University of Akureyri, Iceland and Royal Melbourne University of Technology, Australia and focused on Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology.
