I am a competent PhD student with an enthusiastic approach towards gaining new experiences and facing difficult challenges. I am currently a member of Interdisciplinary Computing and Complex BioSystems (ICOS) research group. I enjoy working with people and solving problems in a logical and systematic way. I am planning on completing my doctorate degree in Computer Science in 2015 from Newcastle University.

Research

The focal point of my research is in the area of DNA nanotechnology and molecular self-assembly. Particularly, I am interested in answering the question of how nano self-assembly could be programmed to perform arbitrary tasks. This work involves operating on diverse science areas embracing Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence as well as Natural Science, especially Biology, Biochemistry and Physics.

Personal

Zależnie od miejsca, osób, okoliczności, byłem mądry, głupi, prostak, wyrafinowany, milczek, causeur, wyższy, płytki lub głęboki, byłem lotny, ociężały, ważny, żaden, wstydliwy, bezwstydny, śmiały lub nieśmiały, cyniczny albo szlachetny... czymże nie byłem. Byłem wszystkim!
