Dr hab. inż. Paweł Licznar
Director of Project PANDa
A Faculty of Civil Engineering graduate. Obtained a PhD in agricultural science in environment management in 2002 at Faculty of Land Reclamation and Environmental Engineering at Environmental University in Wroclaw for a dissertation on Modeling of Water Erosion Processes in a Small Agricultural Watershed. Being a young researcher, he obtained a number of grants from Foundation on Polish Science in 2004-2005 and 6 awards from the President of Environmental University in Wroclaw.
Obtained a doctor habilitatus degree in technical sciences in the area of environmental engineering in 2010 at Faculty of Environmental Engineering of Wroc³aw University of Technology for a dissertation on Synthetic Rainfall Data Generators for Modeling Storm Water Drainage and Combined Sewer Systems. Since 2012, he has been an associate professor at Wroc³aw University of Technology, currently at Department of Sewage Systems and Waterworks.
He developed an interest in urban hydrology in 1996 when doing a trimester at Union Colleague w Schenectedy, NY in the USA. Later he completed a long-term internships in the USA (Purdue University, University of Iowa, Fulbrighta Program), in Italy (Universita di Bologna, Batorego Foundation Scholarship), in Germany (Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, DAAD Scholarship) and a few short-term internships in Germany, the USA and Slovakia.
He has been an adviser for 3 completed PhD dissertations, numerous Master and Engineering degrees. He is the author and co-author of about 100 scientific publications. He also presented his finding at many scientific conferences held both in Poland and abroad. He is an expert in the area of measuring and processing rainwater data and hydrodynamic modeling of sewer systems. He cooperates with many research facilities in the USA, Italy and Germany. Since 2012, he has been a member of Council of Experts at The Municipal Water Supply and Sewerage Company in Warsaw. Since 2014, he has been an associate editor of Stochastic Environmental Research and Risk Assessment periodical (Impact Factor: 2.673).
