Krzysztof Pielichowski
Professor Krzysztof Pielichowski is the Head of Department of Chemistry and Technology of Polymers at the Cracow University of Technology, Poland. He is an expert in thermal analysis of polymeric materials, especially polymer nanocomposites along with engineering polymers and hybrid organic-inorganic materials containing POSS. Prof. Pielichowski has co-authored over 160 peer-reviewed papers and he has been recipient of a number of international and national awards, such as Kosciuszko Foundation Fellowship in 2000, Fulbright Fellowship Award in 2003 and the Rector of CUT Awards. He is the president of the Polish Society for Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry (2015 until now) and member of the Committee of Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences (2012 until now).

Kinga Pielichowska
Assoc. Prof. Kinga Pielichowska leads her research group in the Department of Biomaterials and Composites at AGH University of Science and Technology. Her research is focused on polymer chemistry and technology as well as nanotechnology, she particularly specializes in the areas of phase transition and thermal degradation of polymeric materials studied by advanced thermal analysis methods, polymeric phase change materials (PCMs) for thermal energy storage and polymer (nano)composites for biomedical applications. She has (co)authored more than 80 publications in peer-reviewed international journals. She is an academic editor in `Advances in Polymer Technology? (Wiley-Hindawi) and member of the Polish Society for Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry and Polish Society of Biomaterials.
