Kamil Żukowski PhD Eng.

Research Assistant Professor


A graduate of the Faculty of Chemistry at the Warsaw University of Technology in the field of Chemical Technology. In 2015, he obtained a doctoral degree in chemical sciences for the dissertation entitled "Studies of boronic acids as synthetic molecular receptors for simple sugars in miniature flow systems". From 2010, he was employed at the Warsaw University of Technology, initially as an independent chemist at the Faculty of Chemistry. Currently, associated with the Center for Advanced Materials and Technologies "CEZAMAT" as a researcher (since 2017). He has education and skills in the field of analytical chemistry, microfluidics, and the design and manufacture of miniature diagnostic devices.

Co-author of 28 scientific publications (HI = 8), as well as numerous reports and presentations at well-recognized national and international conferences. Winner of the first and second degree team award of the Rector of the Warsaw University of Technology for scientific achievements in 2011-2012 and 2013-2014. Co-author of 11 inventions in the field of microfluidic systems. A key contractor in many (over 10) research projects (NCN, NCBiR, FNP, MNiSW, IDUB) in the field of chemical synthesis, analytical chemistry, medical diagnostics and microfluidic technologies.
