Piotr Garstecki is an Associate Professor at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Science, in Warsaw, Poland. He obtained MSc in Theoretical Physics from the College of Science of the Polish Academy in 1998 and PhD in Chemistry from the Institute of Physical Chemistry PAS. He later conducted research as a postdoctoral fellow in the group of Prof. George Whitesides at the Chemistry and Chemical Biology Department at Harvard University. He currently leads the Research Group of Microfluidics and Complex Fluids at the Institute of Physical Chemistry in Warsaw. The group conducts research on fundamental aspects of the physics of soft matter systems and develops microfluidic tools for chemistry and biology. He coauthored close to a hundred scientific publications and multiple patent applications and cofounded two spin-out companies: Scope Fluidics and Curiosity Diagnostics, both working on the use of microfluidic technologies in medical diagnostics.
