My photo I work as a professor at the Astronomical Observatory of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland. I study physical properties of asteroids, mainly those that come close to the Earth. I observe them with different telescopes and determine their rotation periods, sizes, shapes and spin axies. My interests also include instrumental astronomy: building telescopes and detectors. Besides, I enjoy teaching astronomy classes. The ability to explain something to others is the test of my own understanding.
