Andrzej Dzienia is a doctor of chemical sciences, assistant professor at the Institute of Materials Engineering, Faculty of Science and Technology, the University of Silesia in Katowice, currently conducting a postdoctoral fellowship in the FNANO team led by Dawid Janas, Prof. Silesian University of Technology. Formerly, he graduated with a master’s degree in biotechnology and worked for two years as an organic and medicinal chemist in the R&D department of Selvita. His current research interests include synthesis and characterization of polymers, selective isolation of SWCNTs in organic solvents, chemistry and physics under high-pressure conditions and radical functionalization. Thanks to the widespread knowledge from various fields of chemistry such as organic, polymer and physical chemistry, he attempts to combine the information available in the literature together with the results of experimental work to find an elucidation of the mechanism of conjugated polymer affinity toward single-walled carbon nanotubes of different diameters and chiralities. Dr Dzienia is the author of 22 JCR-listed papers, 3 patents (2 PL and 1 WO), a reviewer of the Macromolecules journal, and led the Tango project on polymer synthesis under high pressure conditions. These achievements were recognized by the awarding of the START scholarship for talented young scientists by the capital of the Foundation for Polish Science.
