I am an Associate Professor at Janusz Gil Institute of Astronomy of the University of Zielona Góra in Poland. Before coming to Zielona Góra, I had been a research scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD (USA).

I am a theoretical astrophysicist. Most of my research is on physics of compact objects and high energy astrophysical phenomena. I use both numerical and analytical methods in my research but especially enjoy developing new numerical techniques for solving complex astrophysical problems.

Astrophysical phenomena of interest include:

  • Radiopulsars
  • Magnetars
  • Galactic microquasar SS433
  • Galaxy clusters
  • Jets from Active Galactic Nuclei
  • Cosmic Infrared Background Radiation
  • Gamma-Ray Bursts

Physical processes of interest include:

  • Electron-positron cascades
  • Plasma physics
  • Force-Free magnetic fields
  • Radiation processes in astrophysical plasma
  • Radiation hydrodynamics
