Currently I am a post-doc in the department of Freshwater and Marine Ecology at University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I am interested in optical properties of phytoplankton and other optically significant components of the sea water measured both remotely and in situ.

Before joining UvA I have worked for 5 years at CSIRO O&A Hobart, Australia and before that in the Radar Remote Sensing group at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden.

I received my PhD from the Department of Physical Oceanography, University of Gdansk, Poland. The topic of my PhD project was: Identification of the dominant phytoplankton groups in the algal blooms in the waters of the Baltic Sea using remote sensing methods. It focused on the use of optical remote sensing in the waters of the Baltic Sea. It was an interdisciplinary project which combined of optical theory, radiative transfer modelling, and marine biology.
