O sobie

I am naturally curious and persistent. Usually ;). At work: everyday advancement and creation of new materials which requires a detailed understanding of the atomic arrangement of the materials. Involved in developing methodologies to better characterize materials by X-ray diffraction methods (WAXS, SAXS) various physicochemical techniques and improving the chemical methods used in synthesizing new materials. The research profile applies physical chemistry and crystallography. Privately, happy wife, although I am not a fanatical housewife. I am looking for free time, and when I find it a little, I grab for paints (oil and watercolor). My favorite color is the color of my life - my little daughter.
