Hanczyc was born in Wrocław, southwest of Poland. He is a post-doctoral researcher at the University of California, Santa Barbara in the group of Nobel Prize winner Professor Alan Heeger.

With degrees in biotechnology, physics and chemistry, and joint PhD projects between Sweden and Poland, he is an author of world top scientific publications.

In his private leisure time, Hanczyc likes travelling and sports, he is a big fan of soccer and skiing. He likes to read about history as well as science-fiction and fantasy, and he is always open for new exciting adventures.

Hanczyc is a welcome asset to The Rotary Club of Goleta.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
