Piotr Sleczkowski was born in Knurow, Poland, on May 5th, 1984. He studied Industrial and Engineering Chemistry at the Silesian University of Technology (SUT, Gliwice, Poland), where he received his MScEng degree in December 2010. His master project, entitled ‘Liquid Crystalline materials with insight into discotic mesogens’ was carried out in the Department of Physical Chemistry and Technology of Polymers (Faculty of Chemistry, SUT) under supervision of prof. Jerzy Zak, PhD, DScEng.

In addition, in September 2007 he was accepted for a two-year interdisciplinary Erasmus Mundus Master’s Course: ‘MONABIPHOT: Molecular nano- and bio-photonics for telecommunications and biotechnologies’, organized by international consortium of 4 European universities and coordinated by Institut d’Alembert (ENS Cachan, France). During the final year, he has performed a research project at the Institut des NanoSciences de Paris (University Paris 6, France), and after defending master thesis, entitled ‘Time-of-flight measurements of new semi-conducting liquid crystalline materials’ in July 2009, he has obtained MSc in Physics from ENS Cachan, and MScEng degree from Wroclaw University of Technology.

Since March 2010, he is a PhD candidate, jointly: in the Chemical Physics for Functional Surfaces group at Institut des NanoSciences de Paris (University Paris 6, France) under the supervision of Dr. Emmanuelle Lacaze, and in Biomolecular Nanotechnology group at the University of Twente, under the supervision of Dr. Nathalie Katsonis. The aim of his project is the control of two-dimensional self-assemblies of discotic liquid crystals for understanding the organic electronic devices.
