Teaching and popularizing achievements

  • Participation in a project carried out under the Human Capital Operational Programme co-financed by the European Union under the European Social Fund, entitled "Interactive Engineer Education". My contribution was to develop educational materials for the content of education in the fields of Automation and Robotics,  Mechanical Engineering, Management and Production Engineer and Mechatronics, and also In an interdisciplinary studies: Nanotechnology and Materials Processing Technology, Applied for Computer Science of Materials at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Silesian University of Technology.
  • Participation in a project co-funded by the European Union under the European Social Fund "More attractive activities for the Mechatronics" at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Silesian University of Technology.
  • Participation in the project HORIZON 2020 as an expert regarding the methods of artificial intelligence. It is a funding program for research and innovation in the European Union for the period 2014-2020.o:p>
  • I was one of the organizing and leading course Student Association "BEST" in Gliwice: "AI & VR - welcome to the (un) real world" in 2007. The course was attended by students from the best technical universities in Europe. As part of the course, students have the opportunity to learn and use biologically inspired methods (methods of artificial intelligence and virtual reality).
  • I was head of the laboratory of Computational Science (years 2013 - 14).
  • I am responsible for the process of selecting the topic of the thesis at the Institute of Mechanics and Computational Engineering at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Silesian University of Technology.
  • I was leading one of the events under the "NIGHT OF RESEARCHERS" 2013 entitled "Can you control the pads over the phone? Try it yourself!". Devices built using LEGO Mindstorms sets are presented. The kits include technologically advanced elements such as programmable control unit, sensors, servos and many mechanical components. In 2014, once again I conducted one of the events under the "NIGHT OF RESEARCHERS" 2014 entitled "Did Lego robot could be a helper  of James Bond? Perform a secret mission and win a prize! ". Compared to the previous " NIGHT OF RESEARCHERS ", robots have the option of wireless communication with the controller from the installed operating system "Android", allowing remote control of robots, eg. by a computer, smartphone or tablet. In addition, robots are equipped with a camera, allowing the transmission of the image to the control unit.
  • I have been the advisor and co-advisor for tens of student realized master of science theses, students realized engineer theses. I was a reviewer for tens of works both as a master of engineering. I was an advisor for several publications realized by the students of Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of Silesian University of Technology.
  • I have participated in 28 international conferences among others in: Finland, Portugal, in Italy, France, Australia, Spain, Japan, Brazil and in Czech Republic.
  • I have participated in organizing committee during the scientific conference: International Conference on Computer Methods in Mechanics, CMM 2003, 3-6 Czerwiec 2003, Gliwice-Wisła.

Reviewer in journals

  • Computers and Mathematics with Applications (CAMWA)
  • Journal of Computational Science (JOCS)
  • Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence (EAAI)
  • Applied Mathematics and Computation (AMC)

Internships in scientific or academic ccenter

  • I had a two-week teaching and research internship at the University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign in the United States of America at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), Private Sector & Economic Development Program.
