1997 to present
Place: Institute of Physical Geography and Environmental Planning, Faculty of Geographical and Geological Scienses, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland Position: Lecturer (classes on soil science, lectures and classes on agricultural ecology)
1987 to 1997
Place: Plant Protection Institute in Poznan, Department of Forecasting Methods and Pest and Diseases Registration, Position: Research Assistant (Evaluation of plant protection advisory systems against Phytophthora infestans. Developing the system of pest and disease registration in Poland. Developing Remote Sensing methods of monitoring plant stress and pesticide efficiency based on spectral properties of arable crops)

My scientific work spans the fields of remote sensing, soil science and ecology. I combine field studies and airborne and satellite remote sensing to identification of abandoned lands, estimation their acreage and assessment of succession stage of their vegetation. I take spectral field measurement of arable crops and fallow fields and gathered spectral data are used to improve the interpretation procedures of satellite and airborne images.
