Konrad Tywoniuk is a researcher at the Department of Physics and Technology and leader of the BFS project “Thermalizing Jets: new aspects of non-equilibrium processes at colliders”. He took his PhD degree in theoretical nuclear physics at the University of Oslo in 2008. Afterwards, he has worked as a researcher at the University of Santiago de Compostela, Lund University and the University of Barcelona (as a Juan de la Cierva fellow). He has also spent 3 years at the Theory Department at CERN, partly funded by a Marie Skłodowska-Curie scholarship.

He is mainly interested in dynamical phenomena involving nature’s fundamental interactions, mainly the weak and strong nuclear force. Of particular interest is the description of quark-gluon plasma at high temperature and its interaction with “jets”, or rays of energetic particles created in collisions between protons and nuclear nuclei.
