Dr Marcin Patecki


Fields of interest:

Physics, engineering




Dr Patecki is a post-doc in the Seismic Sensors group at Astrocent with a strong background in applied physics, engineering and numeric simulations.

He graduated from the Warsaw University of Technology, Department of Physics in 2013, and then he obtained his PhD at the same University in 2017. Since 2012 he worked at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, with high energy particle accelerators: the Super Proton Synchrotron, the Large Hadron Collider and the Accelerator Test Facility. For his PhD, he studied the limits of particle beam focusing at the interaction point of future high energy linear colliders. As a side project, he participated in the study of measuring beam line vibrations with the use of seismometers in order to evaluate their impact on beam parameters. After the PhD, he stayed at CERN as a post-doc (Fellow) within the CERN Collimation Team. He has designed a collimation system for the Super Proton Synchrotron to protect the machine against off-momentum losses.

Main scientific interests:

The scientific interests of Dr Patecki concern applied physics including both experiment and numeric methods of simulations and data analysis. Recently he has become more and more interested in machine learning techniques and their application in his projects.
