Dr. Michał Kaźmierczak is a former postdoctoral fellow in the Crystal Engineering Research Group at the University of Limerick, Ireland. He was born in Poznań, Poland in 1987 and received his M.Sc. (2011) and Ph.D. (2016) degrees from Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland. His doctoral work, supervised by Prof. Andrzej Katrusiak, is associated with the intermolecular interactions in organic crystals, resulting in his dissertation “Short-contacts criterion ‎for classifying crystals of organic compounds”.

His research activities have focused on reduction of high-pressure diffraction data and analysis of Cambridge Structural Database.
