INVITED SPEAKERS - PROFILES

Invited Speakers

Prof. Wiesław Leoński
Born 1961 in Poznań, he studied at A. Mickiewicz University in Poznań and Keble College (University of Oxford). He worked under the guidance of and collaborated with prof. Stanisław Kielich and prof. Ryszard Tanaś, gained academic degrees in theoretical physics, and finally was awarded the title of Professor of Physics in 2015. Currently, he is the full professor at the University of Zielona Góra, the Head of Quantum Optics and Engineering Division established form his initiative.
He is the Member of the American Physical Society, American Optical Society, European Optical Society and Polish Physical Society (presently elected for the Membership of the Board of Optics Section).
His research concern quantum and nonlinear optics, quantum information theory, cellular automata, classical and quantum chaos, and biological signals analysis.

Prof. Victorino Franco
Professor Franco got his PhD in Physics from Sevilla University, Spain, where he is now a Professor at the Condensed Matter Physics Department.
He is the former Chairman of the Magnetic Materials Committee of the Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS), the organizer of the 23rd Soft Magnetic Materials Conference; the present Chairman of the Spain Chapter of the IEEE Mag. Soc. and Secretary of CEMAG.
His research interest focuses on magnetic materials for energy applications, including soft magnetic and magnetocaloric materials.

Assoc. Prof. Adriana Zeleňáková
Prof. Adriana Zeleňáková is a Head of Department of Condensed Matter Physics at University of Pavol Jozef Safarik in Košice Slovakia.
Her research interest is focused on magnetic nanoparticles design for refrigeration and theranostics applications.

Dr. Jia Yan Law
Doctor Jia Yan Law comes form Singapore, and she currently works at the Sevilla University, Spain. Her research interest focuses on magnetic materials for energy applications, including soft magnetic and magnetocaloric materials.
She is particularly interested in the production of materials by means of rapid quenching methods.

Dr. Jozef Kovač
Rerum Naturalium Doctor Jozef Kovač is a research worker in the Institute of Experimental Physics of Slovak Academy of Sciences, Košice, where he works at the Laboratory of Nanomaterials and Applied Magnetism.
His scientific interest is focused on soft magnetic materials, mainly the materials of significant magnetic impedance, and the magnetocaloric effect studied for bilayer and multilayer ribbons.
Dr. Kovacs will present the modelling of hysteresis loops in ferromagnetics using Jiles‑Atherton model.

Dr Przemysław Tarasewicz
Born 1971 in Toruń, he studied and then worked at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, where he gained the PhD diploma in 2003. At present, he works both for the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń and for Collegium Medicum, Bydgoszcz.
His main scientific interests are superconductors, magnetic materials, polymers and the mathematical modelling of these substances. A problem of influence of three- and four-electron interactions on superconductivity stands for an important part of his scientific activity.
