I undertook my education in the time of communism in Central and Eastern Europe; however, I was fortunate to have great professors from Warsaw, such as Wiktor Kemula, Jerzy Minczewski, Zygmunt Marczenko and Adam Hulanicki, and mentors from Lublin, such as Andrzej Waksmundzki, Edward Soczewiński and Zdzisław Suprynowicz. They set the tone of Polish analytical chemistry, not only in terms of scientific standards, but also aesthetic and practical.

I finished my studies at the Faculty of Chemistry at the Maria Curie Skłodowska University in Lublin, where I first came into contact with chromatography and where I became a pioneer in Poland in the construction the first liquid chromatograph and the first HPLC columns.
