Dr Dominika Zabiegaj

Assistant Professor

Department: Mechanical and Construction Engineering

Dr Dominika Zabiegaj is a Vice Chancellor Fellow in Future Engineering, involved in research and learning and teaching activities.

Dr Zabiegaj has joined Multidisciplinary Research Team (MDRT) at MCE in March 2017. More recently Dr Zabiegaj worked for National Research Council (CNR) in Genova, at Department of Condensed Matter Chemistry and Technologies for Energy.

Dominika graduated from AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, Poland (2010). She completed her Master’s Engineer degree in Glass Technology, at Department of Materials Science and Ceramics. During her Master Dominika was also a student of University of Genova, at Department of Chemistry and Chemistry in Industry. She was an active member of the Multicultural Archeometallurgy Lab research team. In 2015 she gained her PhD in Material Science and Technology at University of Genova, Italy. 

Her research interests include multidisciplinary study of Material Processing Technology, materials corrosion, nanopowders and particle dispersions, adsorption and novel materials with unique adsorptive, photocatalytic or structural properties.

She believes that: The main motivation for the design of novel materials is based not only on the fact that properties of different components can be combined in one material but also on the multidisciplinary studies and coming from various fields researchers. Where the different scientific approach, perspective and experience come into one benefit.
