Maciej Nowakowski (former team member) started his adventure in physics at the Faculty of Fundamental Problems of Technology, Wroclaw University of Technology (Poland) in 1997. After gaining an engineering diploma in 2001, he joined the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Wroclaw (Poland), where he obtained a master's diploma in solid state physics in 2005. In 2006, he started PhD project in the Applied Optics Group at the School of Physics of National University of Ireland (NUIG), Galway, Republic of Ireland. After obtaining a doctorate diploma in 2011 (ocular wavefront distortion field), dr Nowakowski took part in a four-month project on a prototype ophthalmic instrument evaluation (NUIG, Galway, Ireland). His post-doctoral fellowship (Nicolaus Copernicus University, Toruń, Poland) was focused on a light control in diffusive medium field, and it was carried out under the EURYI project (The European Young Investigator Awards) entitled “Investigation of the control possibilities of low(partially)-coherent light propagation in strongly scattering medium by spatial/temporal phase modulation”,
The project covered new fields of modern adaptive optics related to statistical properties of the light propagation through opaque media. This idea was continued in a project funded by the National Science Centre project "Maestro", entitled “Focusing and imaging in scattering media by partial coherence interferometry and adaptive optics”. Under this project a new technique aimed at controlling of the coherence state of a laser beam was developed (patent application).
In July 2016 Maciej Nowakowski took position of a senior researcher in the Department of Physical Chemistry of Biological Systems at IPC, led by Prof. Maciej Wojtkowski. His main task includes establishment of a new lab focused on applications of developed techniques in biological systems.
