Dr. Mariusz Semczuk is an assistant professor in the Physics Department of the University of Warsaw. He obtained his PhD at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver (Canada) in the group of prof. Kirk W. Madison, specializing in precision spectroscopy of ultracold lithium molecules and ultracold Bose-Fermi mixtures (lithuim and rubidium). His Master's thesis research was performed in the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching (Germany) in the group of a Nobel prize winner, prof. Theodor W. Hänsch.  For his thesis he constructed an ion trap for precision spectroscopy of laser cooled lithium and magnesium ions.

He was a postdoctoral fellow in the Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information of Austrian Academy of Sciences in the group of prof. Anton Zeilinger, where he worked on generation of entangled EPR pairs using a Bose-Einstein condensate of metastable helium.

Since March 2016 he has been a leader of a research group aiming at the creation of ultracold molecules of KCs in the rotational and vibrational ground state.

He is a Principal Investigator of multiple research grants funded by National Science Centre, Foundation for Polish Science, Ministry of Higher Education and Ministry of Development of Berlin/Brandenburg as well as European Union Funds.
