My name is Wojciech Maciejewski. I have scored a Master's degree in the field of architecture and urban planning and obtained postgraduate diploma in architectural lighting in architecture, both from Poznan University of Technology. There I conducted my first research on architectural acoustics and artificial lighting.
I am working as an architect since graduation. My main interest is energy efficiency and energy use in buildings. In 2015 I have completed a sustainability studies programme in Vienna. My current goal is to pass the state exam and acquire full architectural licence later this year.
At the same time I am a PhD candidate at Cracow University of Technology. I am a holder of an independent research grant administered by the university. My research aims to quantify the relation between parameters of public lighting of perceived personal safety. The main challenge is to create an environment that allows controlling the lighting parameters and grants independence from the other factors. In order to solve this problem, I use virtual reality in research and experiments
I am also trying my hand at entrepreneurship. I have started my business activity in 2014 with my own graphic design studio. In 2016 I took part in two entrepreneurial competitions and developed startup ideas that are related to my skills and expertise. At present I work as freelancer.
In the meantime, I play jazz on my violin, go skiing in winter and fly a paraglider during summer.
