Science interests:

I am the leader of Polgraw group ( https://polgraw.camk.edu.pl/pl/ ) - a member of the Virgo gravitational wave detector project ( http://www.virgo-gw.eu/ ). The groups has 26 members from 9 Polish institutions (including NCBJ). Virgo Project collaborates closely with the LIGO Project ( https://www.ligo.org/ ). By Memorandum of Understanding between LIGO and Virgo, all analyses are performed jointly by common data analysis groups.

I specialize in searches for gravitational wave signals from rotating neutron stars. I have developed a number of pipelines to search for such signals. The pipelines are used for the analysis of LIGO and Virgo data and resulted in several publications of the LIGO - Virgo consortium.

List of publications:

   for the gravitational wave signal of a coalescing compact binary,
