In 2011 Piotr received an engineers degree in Photonics Engineering at the Warsaw University of Technology. After his first degree he continued his studies in Photonics Engineering at the Warsaw University of Technology and in 2013 graduated with an MSc. His master thesis was considering holographic displays “Development of point source synthetic hologram registration system in Fourier configuration”. After graduating Piotr started PhD studies at WUT where he continued his research in the development of holographic displays.
Role in the Project
Piotr joined the University of Dundee as a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher on the PHOtonic tools for Quantitative imaging in tissUeS (PHOQUS) project. His work in the PHOQUS project will involve building a state-of-the-art superresolution 3D STED microscope. It will be used for in-vivo imaging of the human mitotic spindle. Thanks to such a tool there will be a possibility for live imaging of the mitosis process with sub-diffraction limit resolution.
