Professor Eng. Krzysztof Kurek
Krzysztof Kurek graduated at the Warsaw University of Technology Technical Physics and Applied Mathematics Faculty in 1980. His PhD on hadrons, partons, quarks and chromo-dynamics was defended at Warsaw University Physics Faculty in 1986. In 2012 he finished his DSc proceedings with a thesis entitled “Understanding the Nucleon’s Spin Structure. The Direct Gluon Polarisation Measurement at the COMPASS Experiment”. In 2019 he was awarded the title of professor. His professional interests include physics of elementary particles/particle interactions, quantum field theory (in particular quantum chromo-dynamics), structure of the nucleon, application of neuron networks in high energy physics.
Professor Eng. Krzysztof Kurek used to work at high energy physics experiments run with the use of muon beams in CERN (Geneva): New Muon Collaboration, Spin Muon Collaboration, and Common Muon Proton Apparatus for Structure and Spectroscopy (COMPASS). Since 2013 member of the Polish team working on the LHCb experiment run at the LHC accelerator in CERN. Author or co-author of more than 250 papers published in international recognized scientific journals. Former Head of NCBJ PhD Studies and former NCBJ Scientific Secretary. NCBJ Director General since October 25, 2015 .
