I am a (tenured) assistant professor within the Embedded and Networked Systems Group of TU Delft, The Netherlands, leading Sustainable Systems Lab.

My research vision is to make Internet of Things free from batteries, less polluting and sustainable. With my students I do research that is experiment- and systems-oriented (where system is a creation of new hardware and software). Until the start of my tenure track at TU Delft in 2013 I researched performance of Cognitive Radio systems.

I have obtained my MSc (magister inżynier) degree from Wrocław University of Science and Technology, Poland, in October 2004, and my PhD degree from TU Delft, The Netherlands in April 2009 (I was promoted by professor Ignas Niemegeers based on a thesis titled Opportunistic Spectrum Access: Designing Link and Transport Layer).

In 2011 I completed my postdoctoral training at UCLA's Cognitive Reconfigurable Embedded Systems Lab, USA, under the mentorship of professor Danijela Čabrić. Between 2011 and 2012 I worked as a research scientist at Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute, Germany, under the supervision of professor Sławomir Stańczak.

Project-wise I am involved in Dutch Research Council's ZERO project targeting energy-autonomous Internet of Things and Maria Skłodowska-Curie's European Training Network ENLIGHTEM project on low-energy visible light Internet of Things. I am also exploring new research avenues through my involvement in European Union's Quantum Flagship project on Quantum Internet.

I was a recipient of Dutch Research Council's Veni 2012 grant and I am happily married with a dentist.
