I am an associate professor in the Laboratory of Thermal Engineering. In 2002, I received the MSc degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Czestochowa University of Technology in Poland. My MSc research (“Numerical simulation of stresses and deformations occurring in stabilizers during the process of bone stretching”) was performed at the Tampere University of Technology in Finland within the EU Socrates-Erasmus program. After graduation, I worked in the industry (TRW Automotive Poland) and at the Czestochowa University of Technology. At the end of 2004, I started a PhD research at the University of Twente (The Netherlands) within the FP6 Marie Curie Research and Training Networks project FLUISTCOM. In 2006, I carried out a three-month research at the German Aerospace Centre. In 2008, I became a UD in the Group of Thermal Engineering; and I received my PhD degree in 2010. The topic of PhD thesis was “Vibro-acoustical instabilities induced by combustion dynamics in gas turbine combustors”.
