Marta Gmurek
Lodz University of Technology, Poland

Prof. Marta Gmurek received her MSc degree in Environmental Engineering from Lodz University of Technology (TUL) and also PhD and DSc degrees in Environmental Engineering in 2014 and 2018, respectively. Since 2020, she has been Associate Professor at TUL (Department of Molecular Engineering).

After PhD her scientific research concentrated on chemical engineering with elements of environmental engineering. Her scientific and research interests are focused on the effective elimination of Contaminants of Emerging Concern from the aquatic environment (wastewater and natural water) using light-based treatment technologies, especially advanced oxidation, and water reuse. Lastly, she focuses on developing new technologies of wastewater treatment in terms of the elimination of micropollutants, i.e. antibiotics, as well as antibiotic resistant bacteria, and antibiotic resistance genes.

She took part in three-month internship at Charles University in Prague, Department of Inorganic Chemistry and two- and one-month DAAD internship in Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Chair of Water Chemistry and Water Technology (under Prof Harald Horn supervision, 2014, 2017). She worked as a Visiting Researcher at University of Coimbra for 20-months (2019/2020). In 2021/2022, she was working at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology  as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow

She took a part as a contractor or main contractor in several project funded from NCN (National Sience Centre) and NCBiR (National Centre for Research and Development). She was a PI of grant supported by Norway Grants in the Polish-Norwegian Research Programme (Small Grant Scheme) (2014-2016). Since 2021 she is a PI in a grant “Investigation of the synergy between ozone and novel plasma-deposited catalysts in hybrid electrochemical ozonation of micropollutants” funded by NCN.
