Biography

Jacek serves as an Associate Professor of livestock odor and air quality at the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering at Iowa State University.  His department is one of the top 3 in the U.S., while the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in #8 in the world.  Jacek has strong connections with Poland.  He graduated from the Warsaw University of Technology in 1989 with M.S. in Mechanical Engineering.  He became interested in environment & air quality and graduated with M.S. in Environmental Quality Engineering and Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Alaska, Anchorage and The University of Texas at Austin, respectively.  In 1998, He got introduced to analytical chemistry by Prof. Janusz Pawliszyn at the University of Waterloo in Canada where he worked on novel and sensitive methods for air sampling and analysis of volatiles and particulate matter.  Jacek served as Assistant Professor at Texas Agricultural Research Station (2000-2004) with focus on livestock odor and air quality.  Since 2004, Jacek continues this work at Iowa State University where he also teaches Air Pollution, mentors technology projects, and organizes study abroad programs to Poland.  His research group works on measurements and control of odor, volatile organic compounds, ammonia, particulate matter, and greenhouse gases from animal production systems.  In 2007-2009, Jacek was one of the co-PIs of the National Air Emissions Monitoring Study, the largest project focused on air quality and livestock operations in the U.S. In addition, the simultaneous chemical and sensory analyses concept they pioneer for livestock applications is also used to solve problems in environmental engineering, food science, animal health, and forensics.  Jacek currently serves as a U.S. Fulbright Scholar at the Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life sciences.
