Associate Professor

Dr hab. Justyna Walkowiak-Kulikowska, Associate Professor is an employee of the Department of Synthesis and Structure of Organic Compounds, Faculty of Chemistry, University of Adam Mickiewicz in Poznań. She defended her doctoral thesis under the supervision of Professor Henryk Koroniak in 2006. In 2008-2010 she completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship under the Marie Curie FP7 scholarship program, based on the cooperation of renowned centers of the University of Oxford (Prof. Véronique Gouverneur) and ENSC de Montpellier (Dr. Bruno Ameduri), conducting research aimed at the synthesis of new fluoropolymer materials with the potential to create membranes for fuel cells. After returning to her home university (AMU), she continued research related to the preparation of new, functional fluoropolymers, and in 2019 she received a degree of Habilitated Doctor.
