Dr. eng. Katarzyna Adamska – project manager: graduated the studies on the speciality „Technical Chemistry and Quality Systems in Chemical Enterprise” at the Faculty of the Wrocław University of Technology. She received her PhD at the Institute of Low Temperatures and Structural Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences in the Division of Nanomaterials Chemistry and Catalysis.
Recently, as a representative of Poland, she was the member of the winning group in the „Young Generation” competition organized by the European Federation of Catalysis Societies. Financing support received from the Foundation for Polish Science enabled her to perform research work after a break related to the maternity leave.
Dr. Damian Szymański received his MSc and PhD in Chemistry from the University of Wrocław in 2013 and 2018, respectively. Since October 2017, he is member of the Division of Nanomaterials Chemistry and Catalysis in the Institute of Low Temperature and Structure Research, Polish Academy of Science. Co-author of 8 publications and principal investigator in two grants funded by MNiSW (2013-2017). His current research focuses on scanning electron microscope (SEM-EDS) as well as spectroscopy and chemistry of lanthanide doped materials. In the Project he is responsible for identification chemical composition of Ru-Re and Ru-Pt nanoparticles supported on oxide carriers by using SEM-EDS technique.
Sebastian Zieliński: A student of the fifth year of Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. The area of scientific interest is heterogeneous catalysis, soot combustion of industrial origin, alkali-doped catalysts obtained „in situ” and synchrotron radiation. As a scholar of the project he is involved in the study of catalytic activity (Temperature-Programmed Oxidation) and thermal stability (Thermogravimetry / Differential Thermal Analysis).”
Szymon Smykała: Student of material engineering on Silesian University of Technology in Gliwice. Passionate about transmission electron microscopy, which he plans to base his future on. In the free time devoted to XPS spectroscopy, modern music and Jim Jarmusch’s movies.
