Introduction
I'm an Associate Professor in the Institute of Information and Communication Research at NCU. I received MSc degree in physics and PhD - in information science. My research concerns information visualization methods and their application to represent knowledge. I just start to work within Chist-era grant BITSCOPE - Brain Integrated Tagging for Socially Curated Online Personalized Experience. I am a member of ISKO Polish chapter, and the Polish Computer Science Society.
