Profile

Hi!
I am Alicja. I come from Poland, Europa. I live and work in Japan for 3 years now. My research work focuses on the storage of gases in solid materials, especially the storage of Oxygen in ceramic materials and Hydrogen in metal alloys and quasicrystals. I also research alternative oxygen production using ceramic materials.
Please send me an email if you wish to contact me.

Regards,
Alicja
