Meet our interns

During the internship at the University of Gdańsk, Anna is planning to improve her knowledge and broaden her experience in the heterogeneous photocatalysis and techniques used in chemical analysis. Her research work pertains to the design, synthesis and analysis of new layered photocatalysts based on a double hydroxide.

Maria is doing her internship at the Gdańsk University of Technology. The main research object is obtaining new catalysts based on metal-organic compounds, the characteristics of those catalysts and the measurements of photocatalytic activity in the hydrogen generation process.

Stabak is studying the operation of rail transport in the urban area of Gdańsk, Gdynia and Sopot, and the use of geospatial and geostatistical applications for that purpose.
