Biographical note: professor Krzysztof Jóźwik

Krzysztof Jóźwik graduated with distinction from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Lodz University of Technology in 1987, with a Master degree in Mechanical Engineering with specialization in automotive and tractor engineering. That same year he started working at the Institute of Turbomachinery  as an intern constructor. He has advanced to higher-ranking positions, first in the engineering and technical group, and since 1989 in the research and teaching group. In 1998 he successfully defended his doctoral dissertation Investigations of the piston engine turbocharger turbine under steady and unsteady feeding conditions at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, TUL. In 2006, in fulfillment of the requirements for the award of the degree of doktor habilitowany, he presented the monograph Mechanical heart valve with a nanocrystalline diamond layer.

 


Having been awarded the postdoctoral degree bolstered the efforts of the group of young researchers working under the guidance of dr hab. inż. Krzysztof Jóźwik. The group carried out many projects commissioned by manufacturing companies (Dresser-Rand, Faurecia, PSA Citroen & Peugeot, Eurocopter - and later Airbus Helicopters), including numerical analyses and the design of a rotor propulsion system for the world's fastest helicopter, X3. Concurrently, numerical models of blood flow were developed.

 

In 2008-2012 he was in charge of the task Development of mechanical heart valves and an air supply system for the heart aiding pneumatic chamber activator which was part of the strategic project Polish Artificial Heart. The expertise built on through his research on blood flows resulted in the monograph „Modelling of Blood Flows” published in 2013, as well as chapters in the monograph concluding the strategic project Polish Artificial Heart. In 2014, he was awarded full professorship.

 

Professor Krzysztof Jóźwik served as the vice-dean for student affairs at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering from 2002 to 2008, for two terms. From 2006 to 2012 he was a visiting professor at Coventry University. In 2007 he was appointed member of the board of Łódź Regional Science and Technology Park Sp. z o. o.. He held the function for 10 years. Since 2007 he has been the director of the Institute of Turbomachinery, TUL. In 2008-2012 he was the vice-rector for education. In 2009 he was appointed external examiner at Cranfield University and has continued in that role to date. Since January 2020 he acted as the vice-rector for education, and since March of the same year he has been Head of the TUL Crisis Center established in response to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. In September 2020 he took office as Rector of Lodz University of Technology for the 2020-2024 term.

Biographical note: professor Łukasz Albrecht

Łukasz Albrecht graduated from the Faculty of Chemistry. He completed his degree in the chemistry of biologically important compounds in 2004. His doctoral thesis, which he defended five years later, was recognized with the Award of the Prime Minister and the Sigma-Aldrich and Polish Chemical Society Award. In 2015 he was awarded his postdoctoral degree (doktor habilitowany) in chemical sciences, and four years later full professorship . He completed his postdoctoral fellowship as a fellow of the Foundation for Polish Science Kolumb program in the research group of professor Karl Anker Jørgensen at Aarhus University, Denmark.

 

 

In 2013, more than three years later, he returned to the Institute of Organic Chemistry, TUL. The grant received from NCBiR under the Lider program provided the opportunity to form a new research group to study chiral organocatalysts in asymmetric catalysis.

 

 

He has co-authored more than 90 publications in JCR journals and several book chapters (bibliometric indicators: index h= 26, his publications have been cited more than 3300 times). In 2017-2019 he served as Deputy Director for Research at the Institute of Organic Chemistry, TUL, and since 2019 he has chaired the Council for Academic Degrees in the disciplines of chemical sciences, chemical engineering, food science and nutrition technology.
