Pawel Roman

Scientific project manager


My research area focuses on (organo)sulfur chemistry, especially in gas purification processes. I am also into analytical chemistry, electronics, and optics. Next to my research activities, I am also involved in writing proposals and coordination of EU-funded projects.
