About Me

I was born in 1983 in Poland and I obtained my academic education there. In 2007 I completed Master Degree at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, and in 2011 received PhD from the Institute of Nuclear Physics in Krakow, Poland. Currently I'm a postdoc at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX.

My research is concentrated on particle physics phenomenology, in particular QCD. The main topics of my work include parton distribution functions together with they nuclear aspects (nCTEQ) and construction of a NLO Monte Carlo parton shower.
