About me


I am a researcher (supported by the Royal Society of Edinburgh) in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh.

My research interests span many areas of statistical physics – an area of theoretical physics which deals with randomness and chance in physical processes. Recently, I have been also working in biophysics, in particular on problems related to microbial evolution and cancer.  

In my research I use computer simulations and analytic calculations. I also do “wet” laboratory experiments with bacteria.

You can read more about my research following the links on top of this page.

Internship/Mphys Projects/PhD

If you are interested in an Mphys project under my supervision, please visit the Mphys Project webpage and follow the link to Mphys Project Descriptions for the list of available projects. If you would like to do a project that is not included in the booklet but is related to my research, please contact me.

If you are an Edinburgh undergraduate student interested in an internship under my supervision, please contact me to discuss possible projects and funding opportunities.

For PhD opportunities, please see this website, and this one. Available projects are listed here. If you would like to work with me on a different project (as long as it is not completely tangential to my research interests), please contact me either.

    Dear Bartek, I saw your bacteria simulation work and thought you might be able to help steer us in the right direction. My studio is working on an animation in which we need to show bacteria growing and covering a surface. I was wondering if you would be able to share how you achieved the simulation results and the software your using to run you simulations?

    Perhaps there would be a way of using that data either directly, or to drive gerometry within 3d applications such as Maya or 3d Studio Max.

    Best wishes,
