I completed the undergraduate studies at the Department of Chemistry, University of Warsaw, Poland. I graduated in 1999 (M. Sc. in Chemistry), master thesis „The spectroscopic investigation of the donor-acceptor complexes”. Then, I began, at the same department, the post-graduate studies under the supervision of Prof. J. Bukowska; Ph. D. thesis „The influence of the intermolecular interactions on the structure of biofunctional thiols adsorbed on Ag and Au surfaces”.
From 2005 to 2007 I worked as an adjunct at the Department of Chemistry, University of Warsaw. Then, I was pursuing my postdoctoral research at School of Chemical Science, Dublin City University, Ireland starting from February 2007. From June 2008 I was employed as an adjunct in the Institute of Physical Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences.
During the last ten years, my research interests are focusing on the Raman vibrational and the surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS), as well as the surface plasmon resonance for the detection and identification of biomolecules (e.g. peptide, protein, DNA, viruses, antigens, antibodies, bacteria and fungi) for analytical and medical applications.
