  • Martyna Sokołowska

As a scientist with a background in biomedical engineering, my primary research interests lie in the areas of sustainable development and biomaterials. Specifically, I am fascinated by the potential for these fields to improve human health and well-being, while also reducing our impact on the environment. In my private life, I enjoy reading crime novels, exploring the world of antiques, traveling to new and exciting places, and experimenting with new recipes and cooking techniques in the kitchen. I believe that my diverse interests in both science and personal hobbies give me a unique perspective, and I am always looking for new ways to combine my passions and make a positive impact in the world.



  • Nina Kantor-Malujdy


From a scientific perspective, I am highly interested in the field of circular economy and biomaterials. Specifically, I am passionate about exploring the ways in which we can create sustainable materials and systems that minimize waste and maximize resource efficiency. In my private life, I am drawn to the world of psychology, and enjoy reading books on the subject. I also find nature therapy to be deeply rejuvenating, and I am fascinated by the world of perfumes and aromatherapy. Additionally, I am committed to leading a healthy lifestyle, and I am constantly exploring new ways to take care of my mind and body.
