In 1987 he has got a PhD in technical science at the Academy of Mining and Metallurgy and then has been employed in the Department of Nuclear Spectroscopy in the Institute of Nuclear Physics PAN in Kraków. Since this time he has been involved in the application of the positron annihilation spectroscopy to the materials studies. His habilitation work was defended in 2001.
           He is the author and co-author of more than hundred articles in physics and two books about the positron annihilation spectroscopy. This is the main subject of his scientific interest. In 2001 he was involved in the project of the construction of the pulsed positron beam at Chalmers University of Technology in Göteborg in Sweden and in 2004 as a visiting professor at KEK in Tsukuba in Japan.
