Karolina Adrjanowicz (dr hab. inż.) studied Physics and Chemistry at the University of Silesia and received her PhD in Physics in 2012. She gained postdoctoral experience in Matyjaszewski Polymer Group at Carnegie Mellon University, NanoBioMedical Center at Adam Mickiewicz University, DNRF-Center ’Glass and Time’ at Roskilde University and School of Molecular Sciences at Arizona State University. Since 2015, employed at the Institute of Physics, University of Silesia. There she serves for the Department of Biophysics and Molecular Physics as associate professor and leads her own research group. Her research focuses on the relaxation dynamics and crystallization behavior of glass-forming systems under high pressure, geometrical nanoconfinement and high electric fields. Her group is currently working on the physics of non-equilibrium phenomena in confined soft matter and its relation to bulk behavior.
