Ph.D., professor of UO
Main study areas:
- Late Cretaceous (biostratigraphy, palaeontology, palaeoecology, event stratigraphy, palaeobiogeography).
- My main investigations focus on the European regions (Poland, Netherlands) and Far East Russia (Chukotka, Sakhalin and Kuril Islands, Amur area)
- My main interest is with ammonites, but I also work with some other groups like inoceramids, echinoids, belemnites and others
- vertebrates troglobionts,
- big Pleistocene mammmals from Silesia (particularly woolly mammoths),
- aquatic vertebrates from Early Triassic
- forensic biology.
Ph.D., professor of UO
- Muschelkalk (lithology, stratigraphy, palaeontology, sedimentology, diagenesis). My investigations focus on the Upper Silesia region in southern Poland.
- Bone accumulations (sedimentology, diagenesis, paleontology). Recently I work on Lower Triassic accumulations at Gogolin and on Upper Triassic accumulations at Krasiejów and other localities in Silesia.
- Biogeochemical processes in sediments.

- Palaeobiological and histological analysis of Metoposaurus krasiejowensis (Temnospondyli) long bones
- inter- and intraspecific analyzes and taphonomical studies on the late Triassic Krasiejów assemblage
PhD, Assistant Professor
- palaeobiology and evolution of Temnospondyli (important and extremely diverse group of extinct Amphibia known from the Carboniferous to the Cretaceous),
- palaeohistology as a key to understand the life history of temnospondyl amphibians (growth rate and pattern, environmental adaptations, metamorphosis, feeding behaviour, phylogeny) of Temnospondyli
- My investigations focus mostly on the Late Triassic (Keuper) localities from Upper Silesia region in southern Poland
- the evolutional aspects requires to include the wide geographical and time-range of samples (from Permian to Late Triassic and from all continents)
- Dermal bone histology of early tetrapods,
- Temnospondyls evolution and palaeobiology,
- Fossil fauna of the Late Triassic vertebrates in Krasiejów,
- Finite Element Method in the studies of the skull biomechanics in extant and fossil vertebrates,
- Engineering geology.
- Triassic small vertebrates
- Temnospondyl amphibians
