Welcome to website of informal group of applied chemometrics at the Institute of Chemistry, University of Silesia in Katowice, Katowice, Poland. We are a number of young people being passionate about chemometrics and potential it can offer.
We propagate our research mission by applying, promoting and developing chemometric methods. We seek for interesting applications of chemometrics to solve academic problems and we challenge industrial issues. We actively employ strategies of chemical fingerprinting and process complex instrumental signals (including signals obtained from chromatographic hyphenated techniques, e.g. GC-MS, LC-MS, near-infrared or fluorescence spectra, hyperspectral images, nuclear magnetic resonance spectra) to study chemical systems using exploratory, comparative data analysis, and data modelling methods.
In our portfolio one can find applications of chemometrics to solve problems found in different -omics sciences, environmental sciences, environmental -omics, forensic sciences, pharmacy, drug design, chemical technology, industry, process control and optimization, etc. In our research we practice the principles of experimental planning to extract maximum relevant chemical information from the smallest possible number of experiments. On everyday basis we collaborate with research institutes and research groups from Poland and abroad.
We guide and support young researchers (BSc, MSc and PhD students) who are willing to extend their knowledge in chemometrics through an active participation in challenging research projects (also in collaboration with industrial partners) and problem solving activities. We seek for strongly-motivated BSc, MSc and PhD students ready to challenge real research problems.
