I am Katarzyna Małek – an experienced researcher with a huge fascination for exploring and solving scientific problems. My expertise covers spectral energy distribution fitting, implementing machine learning algorithms for astrophysical data, spectroscopic redshift measurements, and optical counterparts for gamma-ray bursts (it was a topic of my master’s thesis and a part of my PhD thesis). I am also a dedicated supervisor. I particularly enjoy working with young researchers and inspiring them to pursue a scientific career. My current research activities focus on modelling the spectral energy distribution of galaxies observed from optical to far-infrared wavelengths. I am mostly working with infrared-detected galaxies; I enjoy engaging in public outreach activities, where I can tell other people about my passion.
