  • Current research group (10 postdocs, 7 PhD students, 6 undergraduate students)
  • Conferences attended at least 70 international conferences all over the World, 60 invited lectures
  • Promoter of 15 PhDs completed and another 6 currently in progress, 30 MSc thesis
  • Since 2015 elected the Fellow of the ChemPubSoc Europe society
  • 2007 Invited participant of the 21st Solvay Conference in Chemistry (on molecular machines)
  • Many national and University awards for teaching commitment and academic excellence

Scientific interests: Experimental studies of charge densities in crystals of interesting organic, inorganic compounds and minerals, polymorphism and interactions in pharmaceutical substances, supramolecular compounds, catalysts, model systems with interesting weak and strong interactions (proton sponges, Schiff bases, etc.), biological compounds, artificial molecular machines. I am also very much interested in methodological aspects of X-ray scattering and neutron diffraction particularly in methods going beyond Independent Atom Model (IAM).
