Dr J. Stafiej graduated from the Department of Physics, Warsaw University, 1980. In 1991 he defended PhD thesis supervised by prof. Zofia Borkowska, Institute of Physical Chemistry, Warsaw, (ICHF). He collaborated with JP. Badiali in Paris for over 20 years on statistical field theory for interfacial electrolytes. His habilitation thesis concerns branching pattern of differential capacitance caused by ionic profile depletion (ICHF 2002). Since 2014, as a professor in the Institute of Chemistry, Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski University, Warsaw, he works on corrosion, passivation, nanopore formation and oscillatory phenomena within cellular automata approch. He authors 59 SCI papers.
