New Membrane Materials and New Trends

Wojciech Kujawski (wojciech.kujawski@umk.pl) was graduated from Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun (Poland) where he defended also PhD Thesis. He spent his post-doc internship at Prof. Jean Neel Laboratory (Nancy, France), studying various aspects of pervaporation.
Subsequently, he prepared his habilitation theses both in Poland (DSc, Technical University in Szczecin, 2008) and in France (HDR de Université Montpellier, 2011). Moreover, he has been working for more than 2 years as visiting scholar and visiting professor at European Membrane Institute (Montpellier, France), Université de Rouen (France) and Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona, Spain). In fall 2013, he participated in 9 weeks internship program TOP500 Innovators РScience Management & Commercialization (Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley, California).

Research professional with over 30 years of experience in education, research, and cooperation with diverse external companies. Faculty Member at Faculty of Chemistry, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun (Head of the Chair of Physical Chemistry and Physical Chemistry of Polymers /since October 2017/, Mobility Coordinator /since 1999/, Deputy Dean /2012-2016/). President of Polish Membrane Society (2015-2018), member of Council of European Membrane Society (2009-2012 and 2015-2018), Treasurer of Worlds Association of Membrane Societies (2017-2020). The principal investigator of national and international projects funded by NATO, Polish National Science Centre, and National Centre of for Research and Development. Reviewer to a number of various international JCR indexed journals.

Author and coauthor of ca. 120 papers (Scopus) and over 150 conference contributions (CI=1700 /without self-citations/, h=26). His main research interest is related to membrane separation processes (e.g. pervaporation, membrane distillation, thermopervaporation, gas separation, ultra- and nanofiltration), membranes in food processing, ionic liquids for task-specific membranes, ion-exchange membranes, bio-polymers, fossil and bio-fuels (shale gas included), bio-energy, as well as the modification and functionalization of polymeric and ceramic membranes. He cooperates with several research groups in France, Spain, Portugal, Finland, UK, Italy, Czech Republic, Lithuania, and Canada. Organizer of the series of conferences on Pervaporation, Vapor Permeation and Membrane Distillation (www.chem.umk.pl/FIZ/WK/index.html).
