Beata Koszarna PostDoc

Beata Koszarna was born in Staszów (Poland) in 1977. She obtained her M. Sc. from the Warsaw University under the guidance of Prof. A. Temeriusz and her Ph. D. degree from The Institute of Organic Chemistry of Polish Academy of Sciences, working with Prof. Daniel T. Gryko on the development of new methods for the synthesis of meso-substituted corroles. Rather than going for post-doc she decided to stay with her boss to the end. Since 2006, she has held the assistant position in the laboratory of Prof. Gryko. Her current research interests are focused on the synthesis of porphyrins and pyrrole derivatives. She is a happy mother of Tymon and Ignacy.

Maciej Krzeszewski PostDoc

Maciej Krzeszewski obtained his Ph.D. from the Institute of Organic Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in 2017 under the supervision of Professor Daniel Gryko for the research on pyrrolo[3,2-b]pyrroles and their nonplanar p-extended analogs. During his Ph.D. studies, he joined Professor Valentine Vullev’s group at University of California Riverside (USA) as a visiting researcher studying the influence of dipole effects on electron transfer. Since 2017 to 2019, he has been working with Professor Kenichiro Itami at Nagoya University (Japan) as a JSPS postdoctoral fellow on nonplanar molecular nanocarbons. He is currently working as an assistant in Professor Daniel Gryko’s group.

Yevgen M. Poronik PostDoc

Mariusz Tasior PostDoc

Mariusz Tasior, born in Brzesko (Poland) in 1980, received his M.Sc. from the Warsaw University while conducting research under the guidance of Professor Daniel Gryko. He continued his research in the same team and obtained his Ph.D. from the Institute of Organic Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences, in 2008. He worked as a postdoctoral research fellow under the supervision of Professor Donal F. O'Shea in University College Dublin (2008-2010), before obtaining a postdoctoral position at the Institute of Organic Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Professor Gryko's group. His current research interests are focused on the synthesis and spectroscopy of advanced functional dyes with a special emphasis given to porphyrinoid family (corroles etc.).

Olena Vakuliuk PostDoc

Olena Vakuliuk gained her MSc from Ivan Franko National University of Lviv in 2005. In 2007, she had joined Professor Daniel Gryko's research team and completed her PhD in 2011. After two-and-a-half-year postdoctoral stay at the Warsaw University of Technology, Olena returned to where she belongs. Her research interest currently focuses on design and synthesis of functional dyes for fluorescence imaging but not only.
