Curriculum Vitae

I was bom in Kraków (Poland) in 1930. Having completed my studies in physical chemistry, I graduated with M.Sc. from the Jagiellonian University in 1955. Then, I obtained the degree of D.Sc. in 1963, and after the next major dissertation I was appointed Dr hab. (equialent of Associate Prof.ship) in 1972, both at the Academy of Mining and Metallurgy in Kraków. Full Prof.ship was conferred upon me in 1991 and, although I was retired in 2001, I have still been continuing research activity.

My scientific interests have been concentrated at the problems of porosity and surface chemistry of carbonaceous sorbents, molecular sieves and clay minerals, subjected to reactions with porous polar and apolar substances. Numerous investigations were focused on the possibilities of modification of physico-chemical properties of such substances with particular attention paid to formation of mineral-carbonaceons sorbents.

I am an author or co-author of about 120 papers published in domestic and foreign journals as well as other numerous conference reports and shorter notes. I also took part in joint editing of two textbooks on physico-chemical properties of bituminous coals and one dealing with properties of clay minerals. I organized three international conferences devoted to interactions of carbonaceous sorbents with various vapours and gases, particularly with methane, carbon dioxide and water vapour.

In the years 1984-1990 I was a Vice Dean, and in 1990 - 1993 the Dean of the aculty of Fuels and Energy at the Academy of Mining and Metallurgy. I also hold other posts within the acadeinic structure of the Academy.

My scientific achievements were twice awarded by the Minister of National Education. My research activity, teaching effectiveness and organization skills were also honoured many times with awards of the Rector of the Academy of Mining and Metallurgy.
