Maciej Trzaskowski PhD Eng.

Research Assistant Professor / Department Manager


In 2012 he graduated from the Faculty of Chemistry, Warsaw University of Technology, specializing in Microbioanalysis (individual course of studies). Then, he was a participant of PhD studies at the Faculty of Chemical and Process Engineering, Warsaw University of Technology. In October 2018, he defended PhD. thesis entitled "Microfluidic systems utilizing surface plasmon resonance phenomenon in biological detection systems". He has been working in CEZAMAT since 2017, employed as Research Assistant Professor since 2019. Head of the BioNanoTechnology Department since 2020.

Co-author of 15 articles in scientific journals, 3 chapters in monographs and one patent. Participant of numerous scientific projects.

In his scientific work he specializes in medical diagnostic systems, especially for pathogen detection. Other research interests include the synthesis and modification of biomaterials using graphene and its derivatives and electron microscopy.
