Dr. Ewa Patyk-Kazmierczak is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Crystal Engineering Research Group at the University of Limerick, Ireland. She was born inPoznan, Poland in 1988 and received her B.A. (2010), M.Sc. (2012) andPh.D. (2016) degrees from Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland. Her doctoral work, supervised by Prof. Andrzej Katrusiak, is associated with the high-pressure polymorphism of carbohydrates, resulting in her dissertation“Pressure-induced structural transformations of carbohydrate crystals”.

Her research activities have focused on crystallization and co-crystallization, as well as determination of crystal structures of various compounds by means of X-ray diffraction.
