Biography
Arkadiusz Matwijczuk, PhD, graduated in physics, speciality computer physics, from the Mathematics, Physics and Computer Sciences faculty at the Marie Curie-Sk?odowska University in Lublin.The Doctor's thesis entitled "Spectroscopic studies of the molecular organisation of chosen 1,3,4-thiadiazoles in a model environment" was written in 2013 under the supervision of prof. Mariusz Gago?. The thesis, which earned the rector's award of the University of Life Sciences in Lublin, was also defended in the faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Sciences at the Marie Curie-Sk?odowska University in Lublin.Currently I am working as an assistant professor at the Biophysics faculty in the Physics department of the University of Life Sciences in Lublin. During the period 2013-2015 I went to Kraków to work as a postdoctoral researcher at the faculty of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Biotechnology of the Jagiellonian University in Kraków as a member of prof. Leszek Fiedora's research group. I worked on a project entitled TEAM "Model dyes and photosynthetic complexes in photodynamic therapy and solar energy conversion". Previously, during the years 2011-2013, I absolved a few short internships in prof. Sebastian Ma?kowski's group at the Miko?aj Kopernik University in Toru? in the Aleksander Jab?o?ski Physics Institute. I specialise in researching molecular effects of 1,3,4-thiadiazole and triazole compounds.
 
Research Interest
Molecular spectroscopy such as electron absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy, RLS (Resonance Light Scattering) and fluorescence lifetimes measurements (mainly using TCSPC - Time-Correlated Single Photon Counting), infrared FTIR and Raman spectroscopy, DSC measurements (differential scanning calorimetry) as well as measuring absorption and fluorescence spectra, and lifetimes in high-pressure systems.
