Asst Prof Grzegorz Lisak

Grzegorz Lisak obtained his M.Sc. (Chem. Eng.) in physical chemistry in 2007 from Poznań University of Technology, Poland. He obtained his Dr. (Tech.) in analytical environmental electrochemistry in 2012 from Åbo Akademi, Finland. In 2013 he was a visiting research fellow at the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute, University of Wollongong, Australia.

In 2014/2015 he was a research fellow at the Department of Biomedical Sciences, Biofilms- Research Center for Biointerfaces, Malmö University, Sweden. Between 2006 and 2016 he has been on several short-term research visits, namely at AGH-University of Science and Technology, Poland, University of Otago, New Zealand and Osaka University, Japan.

Also during this time, he has been involved in several industrial projects for Thermo Fisher Scientific and Ekokem Oy, Finland. Dr. Lisak is an active member of International Society of Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Society. Currently he acts as Assistant Professor at Nanyang Technological University at School of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
