Anna Bajorek (ORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0001-6393-1361) is an associate professor at the A. Chełkowski Institute of Physics, Faculty of Science and Technology, the University of Silesia in Katowice.
In her research, she uses mainly XRD, XPS, DLS techniques and SQUID magnetometry. She is also involved in applying the XRF method for industrial analysis. A. Bajorek is the author and co-author of about 90 publications and the active reviewer in many high-ranked journals. She is engaged in various scientific research, mainly focusing on: (i) the correlation between magnetism and electronic structure in intermetallics based on rare earth, (ii) magnetocaloric materials and (ii) various nanomaterials. The latter has been her main research activity for a couple of years. In 2013 she started working on the synthesis of nanopowders by the HEBM approach. Currently, she is working on spinel ferrites-based nanocomposites in cooperation with national and international institutions. She has recently been an active user of PHELIX beamline at synchrotron SOLARIS, where she successfully studies the synergic effect between spinel ferrites and nanotubes/graphene oxides in nanohybrids.
Anna Bajorek, for many years, has been involved in the internationalization process of the University. She has coordinated the internship program with L’école d’ingénieurs du CESI Rouen (France) and Polish-French studies in nanophysics conducted jointly with the University of Le Mans (France). In 2015, A. Bajorek received a distinction in the competition for the “Internationalization Leader of the University of Silesia for developing intensive international students cooperation at the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry”. As a representative of the Institute of Physics of the University of Silesia, she is a member of the Governing Council of the Consortium Neutrons for Polish Science. She is also a member of the Polish Synchrotron Radiation Society.
