Supervisors from Institute of Chemical Engineering


Anna Gancarczyk is an associate professor (since 2020) at the Institute of Chemical Engineering, Polish Academy of Sciences. She earned her PhD from the Institute of Chemical Engineering PAS, followed by her DSc (habilitation) at the Silesian University of Technology, Gliwice, Poland. She is an expert on heat, mass, and momentum transport phenomena and optimization of structured reactors. She is also interested in catalytic processes, with a particular emphasis on environmental protection processes.


Research interests:

Structured reactors, chemical reaction engineering, chemical reactor modeling and optimization.
