researchers and lecturers

Prof. dr hab.
Piotr Frankiewicz

Main research areas: Fish ecology in rivers and reservoirs, ecohydrology, biomanipulation, hydroacoustic, trophic interactions in freshwater ecosystems

Main research areas: Water biomonitoring and ecotoxicology including genetic ecotoxicology, Toxicity and genotoxicity of cyanobacteria and different cyanobacterial toxins - health aspects, Interaction cyanobacteria, other bacteria and cyanophages, Microorganisms in biodegradation process (e.g. nutrient removal), Biotechnology for ecology

Dr hab., prof. nadzw. UŁ
Adrianna Wojtal-Frankiewicz

Main research areas: trophic interactions in aquatic food chains, the impact of cyanotoxins on aquatic organisms, antioxidant mechanisms protecting zooplankton from harmful effects of cyanobacteria toxins, analysis of long-term changes in plankton succession depending on biotic and abiotic conditions. Her research concerns monitoring and control of ecosystem succession processes in subsequent stages of eutrophication, reduction of eutrophication symptoms (such as toxic algal blooms) in reservoirs and lakes by regulation of feedbacks in hydrological and biological systems.

Dr hab., prof. nadzw. ERCE

Main research areas: Ecohydrology, Catchment processes, River hydrology and nutrient transportation, Flood sedimentation processes on the river floodplain, River floodplain hydrology, ecology and management, Phosphorus cycle in the ecosystem of the river valley, Modelling of river valley processes, Point source pollution of nutrients, Eutrophication of the Baltic Sea

Dr hab. Prof. nadzw. UŁ
Iwona Wagner

Main research areas: Biotic / abiotic regulations of nutrient transformations in river-floodplain system, Hydrological control of ecological processes in reservoirs and eutrophication, Effect of global climate change on ecohydrological processes, Implementing ecohydrological projects

Dr hab. prof. nadzw. ERCE i UŁ
Magdalena Urbaniak

Main research areas: Investigation of the sources and migration paths of xenobiotics (mainly priority hazardous substances and contaminants of emerging concern) in the environment; Identification of risks arising from the presence of the xenobiotics in the environment; Development of efficient and environmentally-friendly methods (bio-, phytoremediation) for the elimination of the xenobiotics from the environment.
