Three Young GUT Researchers Received Scholarships from the Minister of Science and Higher Education

Anna Zielińska-Jurek, Ph.D., D.Sc., Eng. from the Faculty of Chemistry as well as Adrian Bekasiewicz, Ph.D., Eng. and Michał Sobaszek, Ph.D., Eng. from the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics received scholarships from the Minister of Science and Higher Education for outstanding young scientists. The conditions for obtaining the scholarship include conducting high-quality research and proving impressive scientific achievements on an international scale.

 

Research conducted by Anna Zielińska-Jurek, Ph.D., D.Sc., Eng. from the Department of Chemical Technology concerns new materials which allow the use of less energy-intensive light sources in photocatalytic reactions in order to remove xenobiotics from the water and gas phase. She managed and actively participated in research projects supervised by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the National Center for Research and Development and the National Science Center. She is also the author and co-author of 27 scientific articles, including 21 published in JCR journals, 6 publications in English, 4 patent applications and 9 patents. Anna Zielińska-Jurek, Ph.D., D.Sc., Eng. won many awards, such as the international Women in Global Science (WinGS) award.

Adrian Bekasiewicz, Ph.D., Eng. from the Department of Microelectronic Systems focuses on the techniques of rapid design and optimization of and antenna systems using surrogate methods. He participated in 8 research projects funded by the PRELUDIUM, ETIUDA and OPUS programs, as well as by the Icelandic Center for Research. His publication list includes over 200 works, including 88 articles in JCR magazines, 7 book chapters and about 100 reviews. Adrian Bekasiewicz, Ph.D., Eng. has been awarded a number of scientific prizes, the most important of which is the Jan Uphagen’s Prize for Young Scientists awarded by the city of Gdańsk in the category of exact sciences.

Research of Michał Sobaszek, Ph.D., Eng. from the Department of Metrology and Optoelectronics is related to the diagnostics and synthesis of diamond structures for sensory and optoelectronic applications. He manages projects financed by the MINIATURA program and participates in 7 other scientific projects (SONATA BIS, HARMONIA, NATO SPS, Techamatstrateg). His previous achievements include 25 publications in JCR journals and 11 presentations at international scientific conferences. Moreover, Michał Sobaszek, Ph.D., Eng. was presented with the Rector and Senate of Gdańsk University of Technology Diploma for his contribution to the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics performance in the national evaluation.
