My background is in functional analysis and stochastic processes. My interests in these fields were shaped by professors Tadeusz Leżanski and Andrzej Lasota. After graduation from Maria Curie Skłodowska University (with distinction), I had a privilege to study the theory of semigroups of operators under professor Jan Kisyński, who also was my PhD advisor. My interest in problems of convergence of semigroups of operators and generalizations of the Hille-Yosida theorem to non-densely defined operators (a theory involving integrated and regularized semigroups, and inverting of the Laplace transform for vector-valued functions) have grown out of my collaboration with him.
In 1997 I moved to Houston, TX where I was affiliated with Rice University, University of Texas (Medical Center) and University of Houston. It is there that I became interested in problems of mathematical modeling in biology. In particular, I worked with professors Marek Kimmel and Ranajit Chakraborty, on models involving genetic drift or, viewed backwards, Kingman’s coalescence. In 2002 I returned to Lublin, Poland and to Technical University I have been affiliated with since 1988.

Currently, I am mostly interested in applying the theory of semigroups of operators in modelling biological phenomena, especially those of stochastic type. I am particularly pleased if such modelling involves interesting boundary conditions.
