is a Polish scientist in the field of electrochemistry. He is focused on synthesis and characterization of carbon nanomaterials (nanoporous carbons or graphene) and their composites based on sulfur for use in electrochemical energy storage and sound absorbents. His domain is study with the use of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) coupled to other techniques to explain redox processes occuring at the electrode/electrolyte interface.
