Maciej Bilicki

(Center for Theoretical Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Poland)

Maciej was born and grew up in Łódź (Lodz) right in the middle of Poland. Since childhood he was interested in astronomy and mathematics, and after finishing high school he decided to study mathematics with computer science at the University of Łódź. However, before (successfully) completing his MSc program there, he knew that he'd prefer to be an astronomer and not a mathematician or a computer scientist. He therefore took up yet another 5 years of MSc studies, this time in astronomy at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń (of which 1 year spent at the Warsaw University within the MOST program). Following successful summer internships at NCAC Warsaw under Prof. Michał Chodorowski's guidance, Maciej first wrote his MSc thesis in theoretical cosmology (2007) and then took up PhD studies at Bartycka 18 under Prof. Chodorowski's supervision. Maciej's PhD thesis defended in 2012 dealt with "Motion of the Local Group as a cosmological probe".
Over 2012-15 Maciej was a SARChI postdoctoral fellow at the Astronomy Department of the University of Cape Town in South Africa, working on observational cosmology and galaxy catalogs. Over that period he gained particular interest in applications of modern computer techniques, such as machine learning, to astronomy, and he's been working on these ever since. In 2015 Maciej moved to the Leiden Observatory in the Netherlands, staying there until early 2019 as a senior postdoctoral researcher, and extending his interests to other aspects of cosmology, including gravitational lensing. During that time he also kept his links with Poland and in particular over 2017-18 was a part-time assistant professor at the Astrophysics Division of the National Center for Nuclear Research in Warsaw.
In 2019 Maciej joined the Center for Theoretical Physics PAS in Warsaw, first as an assistant professor, and since 2021 as an associate professor. He is co-leading the Computational Cosmology Group there and continues working on observational cosmology, wide-angle galaxy catalogs and applications of computer science techniques to extragalactic astrophysics. He's an active member of several photometric and spectroscopic galaxy surveys, spanning from the optical to the radio domain.

He studied astronomy at the University of Warsaw and went on to CAMK for Ph.D. studies, working on the topics of dissipation in relativistic jets of active galaxies and non-thermal emission of blazars under the supervision of Prof. Marek Sikora. He obtained a Ph.D. degree in 2011 and went on for postdoctoral positions in the USA. He spent 3 years at the University of Colorado Boulder, working with Profs. Mitchell Begelman and Dmitri Uzdensky on relativistic magnetic reconnection and kinetic plasma simulations. In 2013 he was awarded the NASA Einstein Postdoctoral Fellowship. He then spent 1 year at the Stanford University, working with Profs. Roger Blandford and Grzegorz Madejski. In 2015 he returned to CAMK for a tenure-track position, obtained habilitation in 2017 and became a tenured institute professor in 2018.

Mariusz Gromadzki

(Astronomical Observatory, University of Warsaw)

Mariusz was born and grew up in Łomża. He received his master's degree in astronomy from the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń based on the work dedicated to study fast variability of symbiotic stars. He was continuing symbiotic stars research during PhD study at Nicolaus Astronomical Center in Warsaw but explored variability timescales increased from minutes and hours to years, decades and even centuries. After graduation, he shortly worked at the Space Research Centre in Warsaw and then move to Chile. During almost five years at Universidad de Valparaíso, he joined the VVV survey science team, his tasks were related to  searching high proper motion low mass stars and brown dwarfs towards extremely crowded Milky Way fields. He also followed up candidates for the coolest and the oldest brown dwarfs in the Galaxy using near-IR facilities installed on the largest telescopes in the Earth. 
Currently he is working at the Astronomical Observatory of University of Warsaw. His main scientific interests are connected with spectroscopic studies of various types of astrophysical transients, including supernovae, optical counterpart of gravitational wave source, tidal disruption events and other super massive black hole related transients. He is a member of the OGLE team, ePESSTO+ and ENGRAVE collaborations. He is probably the most active polish user of the South African Large Telescope thanks to participation
in  the large program entitled "Observing the Transient Universe".

Krzysztof Hełminiak

(Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center, Toruń)

Krzysztof was born in Barlinek. He obtained his master's degree in astronomy from the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń based on the work on astrometry of visual binaries with adaptive optics. In 2006 he started PhD studies at the NCAC Toruń, working on low-mass stars in binaries, under the supervision of Prof. Maciej Konacki. He obtained his PhD in October 2010, and immediately started his post-doc position at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica in Santiago, Chile. He extended his work on eclipsing binaries to other types of stars, and established the Comprehensive Research with Echelles on the Most interesting Eclipsing binaries (CREME) project, aimed at looking for and characterizing rare, unusual, and otherwise valuable stellar pairs. This work has been continued during his second post-doctoral term, at the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii. In 2016 Krzysztof came back to where he started - Toruń - to continue his work at the NCAC branch.

He is broadly interested in eclipsing binaries, their observations and modelling, as well as looking for planets around them. During his time in Chile and Hawaii, Krzysztof was also working in several large international collaborations, like the Vista Variables in Via Lactea (VVV), Strategic Exploration of Exoplanets and Disks with Subaru (SEEDS) or the Hyper-Supreme Cam (HSC) consortium, as well as helped in several other projects (e.g. HAT-South, Kepler). He is also involved in the Solaris project, namely in the search for circumbinary bodies with eclipse timing variations. He continues his work on precise characterization of eclipsing binaries, focusing on the satellite-borne observations with TESS and (future) PLATO missions. He is also one of the most active Polish astronomers in terms of proposals submitted to ESO.

His favorite aspect of the astronomer's job are the travels. Apart from Chile and Hawaii, his work duties (observations, conferences, scientific collaborations) took him for example to Australia, Argentina, South Africa, Brazil, or Japan.

Agnieszka Janiuk

(Center for Theoretical Physics of PAS)

Agnieszka Janiuk was born and grew up in Warsaw. She studied astronomy at the Physics Department of the Warsaw University, where she received her Master of Science degree in 1998. She learned there about the physics of accretion, and active alactic nuclei, thanks to the course given by dr Andrzej Kurpiewski. The MSc thesis was prepared however under the supervision of prof. Bozena Czerny, who was a faculty member at the N. Copernicus Astronomical Center, Polish Academy of Sciences. After that, Agnieszka Janiuk continued her research via PhD program at NCAC, and she worked with prof. Czerny on the accretion pocesses in AGN and Galactic black hole X-ray binaries (XRBs). As a part of that PhD, she developed a new numerical code for simulating the global structure and time evolution of an unstable accretion disk, which is subject to radiation pressure driven theramal and viscous instabilities. The code is now publicly available under the name GLADIS and serves mainly for pedagogical purposes.

The postdoctoral projects of Agnieszka, started in 2003 at Max Planck Institute for astrophysics in Garching, and then continued with prof. Daniel Proga at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and finally during the tenure-tarck contract at CAMK, were devoted mostly to the cosmic explosions named gamma ray bursts. These phenomena share some physical properties of the formerly mentioned black hole systems, but they are much more violent in nature. They are launching ultrarelativistic jets on the cost of black hole rotation and accretion mediated by the strong magnetic fields. In addition, nuclear reactions that occur in the very hot and dense plasmas of their accretion disks, lead to copious emission of neutrinos. Finally, as we know now from gravitational wave observations and their electromagnetic counterparts, many GRBs originate from binary neutron star mergers, whose ejecta are the nucleosynthesis sites for the heavies elements in the Universe.

From 2010, Agnieszka Janiuk works as a faculty member at the Center for Theoretical Physics of PAS. Since then, she leads her own research group, and has already supervised a number of post-docs, PhD projects and Master students. In 2021, she was awarded the full professorship in natural sciences by the President of Poland.

Ireneusz Włodarczyk


Ireneusz Włodarczyk was born on May 7, 1950, in Kalisz. He observed sunspots there and had sent the results to prof. Jan Mergentaler. After graduating from the Technical Secondary School of Economics there in 1969, he started studying astronomy, specializing in heliophysics, at the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry of the University of Wrocław. He finished it in 1974, defending his MA thesis under the supervision of doc. Bogdan Rompolt. For 37 years, he had worked in the Silesian Planetarium, from 1975, as the head of the local astronomical observatory. Since 1977 he has been observing asteroids and comets and has been studying their dynamics. He started the observations based on the substantive help of Assoc. Maciej Bielicki from the University of Warsaw. On June 11, 1998, he published in Brian Marsden's Minor Planet Center the first Polish astrometric position of the asteroid obtained using a modern SBIG-ST8 CCD camera (MPC 31 870) and on October 8, 1998, the first Polish astrometric comet position (MPC 32 565). Until 2000, he had published nearly 1,000 astrometric observations of asteroids and comets in the MPC. The observations were made by several employees of the Silesian Planetarium.

From 1983, he collaborated with prof. dr hab. Grzegorz Sitarski from the Space Research Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw. The cooperation consisted in testing own observations made in Chorzów and presenting the results of their calculations and own computer programs describing the movements of asteroids and comets. He deals with the observations and dynamics of Near-earth Asteroids and comets, including those discovered at the Moletai astronomical observatories in Lithuania, Baldone in Latvia and VATT in the USA, cooperating with these centres. He also deals with potential asteroid collisions with the Earth, including the dangerous asteroid Apophis until March 2021. He is also studying the evolution of asteroid families. In addition, he deals with the dynamics of Mars crossers as well as asteroids and comets in retrograde orbits.

In 2011, together with astronomy enthusiasts in Rozdrazew, a commune in Greater Poland, they established the 19th branch of the Polish Society of Amateur Astronomers. From the beginning until now, 2021, he is its president. He is a member of Divisions A, C and F of the International Astronomical Union.

Ryszard Szczerba

(Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center, Polish Academy of Sciences, Toruń)

Ryszard Szczerba was born and raised in Warmia, in north-eastern Poland. He studied theoretical physics and mathematics at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, obtaining a master's degree in theoretical physics (in particular quantum mechanics). His interests changed, however, and in 1991 he obtained a PhD in astrophysics at our Institute under the supervision of prof. Romuald Tylenda. One of the results of this work was the photoionization code used by others, but also included in the time-dependent photoionization code developed by students and collaborators of prof. Detlef Schoenberner. After obtaining his PhD, he completed a one-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Institute d'Astrophysique de Paris working with prof. Alain Omont, and then a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Calgary working with prof. Sun Kwok. After returning to CAMK in 1995, he developed collaboration with many groups and individuals in Europe and beyond, incl. Profs. Grażyna Stasińska (Muedon), Detlef Schoenberner (Kiel / Potsdam), Thomas Henning (Jena / Heidelberg), Peisheng Chen (Kunming), Biwei Jiang (Beijng), Jurgen Stutzki (Koeln), and Drs. Pedro Garcia-Lario (ESAC/Madrid), Kevin Volk (Baltimore), Dr. Eric Lagadec (Nice). In 2000, he obtained his habilitation at CAMK for the work "Stationary and hydrodynamic models of dust-gas envelopes around AGB and post-AGB stars: analysis of infrared spectral features". In 2008, he received the title of professor from the President of the Republic of Poland and was appointed to the position of professor at CAMK. His interests are mainly related to the study of evolved stars by means of space based observations in infrared and at submillimeter spectral range. He was the lead co-I for Poland on the Herschel / HIFI instrument and a member of the SPICA Heads of Nations before the mission was removed from the M5 competition by ESA. Since 2015, he is serving as the Chairman of the Scientific Council of our Institute.

Krzysztof Maślanka

(Institute for the History of Science, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw)

After getting my PhD in cosmology, I switched to mathematics, more specifically number theory and its history. In analytical number theory, I obtained a globally convergent series expansion for the famous zeta function of Riemann (1997) ­– one of the two known so far. My results in number theory gained recognition and reception among specialists. In particular, on the basis of my representation of the zeta function, the well-known Venezuelan mathematician Luis Báez-Duarte obtained an interesting criterion for the Riemann hypothesis (2003) – the most important unsolved problem in number theory. Since 2005, after receiving my habilitation for the monograph Liczba i kwant, I have been working at the Institute of the History of Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
