Summary:

I work full time at the university and part time at weather institute where I'm involved into scientific research mostly in the field of seismology, technical duties of managing and maintaining passive seismic experiment "13BB Star" and teaching students. My main interest is computer programing for scientific (and also commercial) applications. I specialize in solving numerical problems. I consider myself specialist in MATLAB, Python, Fortran and C++ programming, as well as LaTeX, GMT, SQL and many others. I'm constantly improving my skills in tools that I know, and learn new ones. Additionally, I have experience in developing and making electronic circuit boards and microcontroller programming.

In future, I would like to combine my programming skills with R&D for new technologies like IoT.

I’m very consistent and effective at problem solving.

I like travelling.

Privately:

Science September 2012 I'm happily married to Agnieszka. We have two great daughters: Klementyna (19 months old) and Matylda (5 months old).

I love animals: especially dogs and parrots. For my whole live there was a dog sleeping in my bed.

If allowed by busy daily schedule I like to do DIY: building and repairing electronics and doing some woodworking.

Teaching:

One of my duties at the University is teaching students. Every semester I have one or two groups of students. Depending on semester I teach Python programming, SQL and database programing, programming microcontrollers or basic electronics.
