Welcome to my website. In this site, I have collected stuff related with my scientific work. The main goal of my research is to relate quantum gravitational effects with astronomical observations. I develop the idea of indirect approach in searching for the quantum gravity effects, with use of the astronomical observations. In these studies I base mainly on predictions of loop quantum cosmology and loop quantum gravity. I explore the idea of nonsingular Universe, the so-called Big Bounce. My investigations concern also relations between different apporaches to quantum gravity. I am researcher the Jagiellonian University in Cracow and at the National Centre for Nuclear Research in Warsaw. In 2012 I completed my PhD thesis ``Perturbations in loop quantum cosmology '' at the Jagiellonian University. Earlier, I graduated in theoretical physics and astronomy from the same University. Have fun with visiting this site!
