Kinga Matuła

Kinga Matuła graduated from Rzeszow University of Technology, Faculty of Chemistry where she was studying biotechnology. As a part of her master studies she was on Erasmus exchange at Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg and worked at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamic and Complex Technical Systems in Magdeburg. She defended her master thesis with distinction in 2013 (Separation of pharmaceutically active isomers by crystallization). Currently she is a PhD student at the Institute of Physical Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences at the Department of Soft Condensed Matter and Complex Fluids.

 

Her main field of research is examination of influence of physical and chemical factors on growth and evolution of living cells. She is mostly focused on investigation of effect of nanomechanical stress induced by nanoparticles on variety types of cell (bacterial, fungal and eukaryotic). She takes part in additional projects concentrated on study of the effect of electric field on viruses, self-organization of materials on the surface, dielectric properties of bacterial cells, surface charge mapping of cell membranes and antibacterial effects of materials.

 

Kinga Matuła participated in many shorter and longer internships, courses and scientific programs, among others at Radbound University in Nijmegen (Holland), Lund University Commissioned Education (Sweden), University of Gdańsk (Faculty of Biology), Bio-Tech Media in Warsaw, PicoQuant in Berlin (Germany), Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (Faculty of Biology and Nanomedical Center), Coca-Cola HBC in Tylicz, Loyola Academy in Chicago (USA), Jesuit High School in Palermo (Italy).

She was awarded for: best poster presentation and twice for best oral presentation during scientific conferences. Kinga gained also Rector’s award for scientific and organizational work, Primus inter pares award for the best graduates of Rzeszow University of Technology and she was awarded a title Tutor of The Year 2015/2016 by children participating in Children's University. She was also a semifinalist of FameLab competition and popularizes science as part of Children's University project.
