I was born in 01.07.1983 in Lublin.
 
I am a Ph.D. student at A. Soltan Institute for Nuclear Studies in Warsaw.

About me

Welcome to my website! This page is devoted to my scientific activities. I am a theoretical physicist.

My field of study

My past scientific activities were connected with general relativity and cosmology.
 
I obtained Masterís degree in physics (at Department of Physics of Warsaw University) by defending a thesis entitled "Stacking solutions in 5 dimensional theories of gravity".
 
After graduation I started Ph.D. studies at A. Soltan Institute for Nuclear Studies (SINS). My field of interest includs quantum cosmology. I have been working in the problem of cosmological singularity.
