Professor Joanna Janczewska

A graduate of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the University of Gdańsk (1999), currently director of the Institute of Applied Mathematics and head of the Subsection of Dynamical Systems at the Faculty of Technical Physics and Applied Mathematics of the Gdańsk University of Technology. She obtained a doctoral degree at the University of Gdańsk in 2002, a habilitation at the Jagiellonian University in 2012, and the procedure for awarding the title of professor was carried out by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Wrocław. In 2008-2010 she was on a two-year research internship at the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw.

Her research interests focus on variational and topological methods in nonlinear analysis. On May 24, 2013, by the work Multiple bifurcation in the solution set of the von Karman equations with S^1-symmetries she received the Prize for the Best Scholarly in the national competition for the best paper concerning mathematics and its applications, organized by the Centre of Applied Mathematics.

In 2015, according to Web of Science, her article Homoclinic solutions for a class of the second order of Hamiltonian systems, joint with M. Izydorek, took the second place at the list Top Papers for Poland in Mathematics and it has been cited over 240 up till now.

She was a co-investigator in many research projects. Now she is the principal investigator of the grant Morse Theoretical Methods in Hamiltonian Dynamics (2018–2022) in the Polish-German Research Programme Beethoven of NCN and DFG. Since 2017 she has been the substantive coordinator for PhD Studies in the project of the National Centre for Research and Development „Integrated Development Program of Gdańsk University of Technology”. She has been the supervisor of two PhD theses. She is currently supervising one PhD thesis.
