D.Sc. Eng. Wojciech Jerzy Nowak works as Associate Professor at Rzeszow University of Technology, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics, Department of Materials Science since February 2016. He received his Ph.D. degree in Material Science (specialization: High-Temperature Oxidation (2014)) under supervision of Prof. Lorenz Singheiser in RWTH Aachen University. In 2022 he received his D.Sc. title at AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow. His research is focused on materials dedicated for high-temperature application, especially Ni-base superalloys, protective coatings, and TBC systems, as well as high-entropy alloys, and their oxidation behavior during exposure at high temperature. He has published more than 50 research articles in SCI(E) journals.
