Dr Grzegorz Litak was born 12.04.1963 in Lublin, Poland. He completed his M.Sc. degree in physics at Maria Curie Skłodowska University (UMCS) in Lublin, Poland in 1988. Later, working on the effect of disorder on correlated and exotic superconductors, he received his Ph.D (1994) and D.Sc (2002) degrees from the same University. Recently his theoretical studies included novel triplet superconductors and the effect of spin-orbit coupling on a superconducting state. After defending his Ph.D thesis he moved to Technical University in Lublin where he is presently working as an associate professor. From that time he also started his research on nonlinear dynamics. He focused on bifurcation theory, chaotic dynamics and nonlinear time series analysis. Recently, he was also involved in reseach on mechanical energy harvesting, focusing on frequency broadband effects. G. Litak published over 250 papers including about 120 in international journals. He is actively collaborating with many researchers from other Institutes, while being a visiting scientist at UMCS in Lublin, Bristol University, Swansea University, ICTP in Trieste, University of Trieste, Max Planck Institute in Dresden, Technical University of Vienna, Technical University of Chemnitz, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Cleveland State University, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, Rey Juan Carlos Universidad in Madrid, University of Marche in Ancona, and University of Aberdeen. Presently, he is a member of the Polish Physical Society, the European Physical Society and the Polish Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. He was an associate editor of the Journal of Applied Sciences (2008-2011) and he is presently an associate editor of the Open Applied Physics Journal.
