A few words about me

I received my M.Sc. degree in technical physics/biomedical engineering from the Wrocław University of Technology, Wrocław, Poland in 1999 and my Ph.D. degree in biocybernetics and biomedical engineering from the Warsaw University of Technology, Warsaw, Poland in 2003. From 2000 to 2001, I was a Socrates–Erasmus fellow at the VU University Medical Center of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, where my adventure with magnetoencephalography began. From 2004 to 2013, I worked as a Research Fellow in the Special Laboratory for Noninvasive Brain Imaging of the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology, Magdeburg, Germany. After that, I joined the Control of Normal and Abnormal Movements Team in the ICM Brain and Spine Institute, Pierre and Marie Curie University (Paris VI, Sorbonne), Paris, France. In 2015, I started working at the Wrocław University of Science and Technology, first in the Department of Computational Intelligence and now in the Biomedical Signal Processing Group of the Department of Biomedical Engineering.

My research interests include time-frequency analysis of biomedical signals with emphasis on magnetoencephalography applied to neuroscience of hearing, movement, and vision.

Scientific initiatives

Initialization and maintenance of a long-term collaboration between the Special Lab for Non-invasive Brain Imaging of the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology in Magdeburg and the Department of Biomedical Physics at the University of Warsaw, and the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Instrumentation at the Wrocław University of Technology (now Department of Biomedical Engineering, Faculty of Fundamental Problems of Technology, Wrocław University of Science and Technology).


Teaching

Courses at the Wrocław University of Technology, Wrocław, Poland:

Modern methods of data acquisition and analysis in electro- and magnetoencephalography (with R. König and L. Kipiński)
Mathematical analysis
Programming in MATLAB
Programming in C++
Programming of 8051 microcontrollers
Basics of electronics
Basics of web page design using HTML

I also taught individual students of the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg and of the Pierre-and-Marie-Curie University (Paris VI), Sorbonne, Paris, France in the field of time-frequency analysis.


Programming

I used to programme in Pascal, C, C++, LabWindows/CVI, and assembler. As a researcher I have been programming mainly in MATLAB, and recently mainly in C#, as these have been the programming languages in the scientific teams I have worked in. In Amsterdam, I programmed in C++ and MATLAB in my work on studying the habituation of human brain activity. In Magdeburg, I developed numerous MATLAB routines for MEG data analysis, from preprocessing to visualisation of the results. In Paris, I developed MATLAB scripts that allowed integration of some features offered by the BrainStorm software with a novel inverse solution approach that was developed in Magdeburg. Recently, I have been programming human-computer interfaces in C# and .NET for the use with Microsoft Kinect v2.


Interests/Hobbies

Modern technologies, photography, HiFi audio and video, guitar, mountaineering.
