Research interests: 
Michał Banaszak graduated in 1985 with a degree physics from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan. He received his PhD degree in Physics, under the guidance of Professor Mark Whitmore in 1991 from Memorial University in St. John’s, Canada, specializing in polymer physics and went on to work as postdoctoral fellow with Professor Maciej Radosz in Exxon Research & Engineering Co. in Annandale, USA, from 1992 to 1995 on the theory and modeling of polymer solutions. From 1995 to 1997 he worked as a research associate with Professor Julian Clarke at the Chemistry Department of UMIST in Manchester, UK, specializing in large-scale computer simulations of ionic copolymers. In 1997, he joined the associate faculty of the Adam Mickiewicz University, obtaining a DSc degree in Physics in 2004 with a specialty in soft matter and computer simulations. He is currently a Professor and Head of the High Pressure Physics Division of the Faculty of Physics and Professor of the NanoBioMedical Centre at Adam Mickiewicz University. His main interests are in developing new models and theories for nanoscale self-assembly of various copolymer systems. He also works with experimentalists in order to verify computational predictions and develop novel efficient algorithms and codes
