I was born in Sosnowiec/Poland, which is the centre of the Zaglebie Dabrowskie area within the historic Lesser Poland region. It is located about 10 km (6.2 mi) east of Katowice and 65 km (40 mi) north of Kraków, situated in the Silesian Upland on the rivers Brynica and Przemsza, a tributary of the Vistula.
My high school was IV Liceum Ogólnoksztalcace im. Stanislawa Staszica in Sosnowiec, which corresponds to upper secondary school (6th form). It has more than a 100 year old tradition and scores as one of the best high schools in Poland.
I have studied at Silesian University of Technology (Politechnika Slaska) in Gliwice/Poland. It was founded in 1945 by Polish professors of the Lwow Polytechnic, who were forced to leave their native city and move to the Recovered Territories (called also Kresy). The University consistently ranks among the top most prestigious technical universities in Poland.
I earned my Ph.D graduation at University of Silesia in Sosnowiec. The University of Silesia was established on 8 June 1968 as Poland’s ninth university. The university was created through a merger of a branch of the Jagiellonian University existing in Katowice since 1963 with the Higher School of Pedagogy which at that time was the only academic institution in the region, with its roots dating back to 1928.
My thesis title was "Appliance of Rough Set Theory in analysis of complex medical datasets" and my supervisor was Dr A. Wakulicz-Deja.
In 2001 I moved to Germany and started to work for Heitec company in Erlangen. Erlangen is a Middle Franconian city in Bavaria, Germany. Erlangen is a city with a long tradition (first official records from 1002) nowadays the city is dominated by the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg and the numerous branch offices of Siemens AG, as well as a large research Institute of the Fraunhofer Society and the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light.
Currently, I'm leading an embedded software development team at Siemens Healtcare GmbH and I'm enjoying my job very much.
