Dr. Wojciech Macyk
Dr. Wojciech Macyk is the Professor of Chemistry in Jagiellonian University. Graduated from the Jagiellonian University in 1997 (supervision of Professor Zofi a Stasicka), he took up PhD studies at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany, in the group of Professor Horst Kisch, working on the photosensitization of TiO2 by visible light. Upon completion of the PhD in 2000, he worked two more years in the same group. In 2002 he joined the Coordination and Bioinorganic Physicochemistry group at the Faculty of Chemistry, Jagiellonian University, where he completed his Habilitation in 2009. His research interests include heterogeneous photocatalysis (especially TiO2 photosensitization and singlet oxygen generation at wide bandgap semiconductors), photocatalytic detoxifi cation and disinfection, as well as photoelectrochemistry of nanocrystalline semiconductors. He was awarded the Albert Weller Prize and the Staedtler Prize, in addition to the fellowships from the Foundation for Polish Science and Polityka magazine.
