Professional career

The scientific field I specialize in magnetohydrodynamical (MHD) models of galaxies of all astrophysical scales. My research is focused on issues like reconnections in galactic interstellar medium, cosmic ray-driven dynamo in galaxies, magnetic field evolution in spiral, barred and irregular galaxies and in Virgo cluster galaxies.Since 2005 I hold the post of the Director of Astronomical Observatory at Jagiellonian University.
