A graduate of AMU - here he defended his master's thesis (1970) and doctoral thesis (1974). Since leaving the country in 1978, he worked first at universities in Nigeria (1978-80) - as the so-called Polservice’s specialist, and Germany (1980-82) - as a scholarship holder of the Humboldt Foundation. He obtained his habilitation through Adam Mickiewicz University in 1989, based on the achievements gained at the Australian National University (ANU), Canberra, Australia, where he worked in the years 1982-1989. He received the academic title of Professor of Physical Sciences in December 2002, also through AMU, on the basis of the achievements gained at the City University of Hong Kong (CityU), where he worked in 1989-2005, including from 1995 as Professor (Chair) in Physics.
Since returning to the Poland in 2005, he worked at the West Pomeranian University of Technology (ZUT) [until 2009 - Szczecin University of Technology] until September 2018. From August 2014, he lives again in Poznań. Since March 2015, he has been Visiting Professor at the Faculty of Chemistry, AMU.
He is the author or co-author of nearly 270 publications in the field of theoretical and experimental solid state physics and chemistry. The scientific achievements also include a number of extensive review articles, including in Magnetic Resonance Review (1987), Applied Spectroscopy Reviews (2001) and more recently Coordination Chemistry Reviews (2015). These works have received numerous citations, as evidenced by the Hirsch index 41.

Other important aspects are worth mentioning:
Research interests include, inter alia foundations of the spin Hamiltonian theory and electron magnetic/paramagnetic resonance (EMR/EPR) spectroscopy, crystal field theory and optical spectroscopy, the theory of magnetocrystalline anisotropy and magnetism. It is worth noting that in the last decades the above-mentioned fields have become the basis of many research in the field of chemistry, which are also carried out by scientists at the Faculty of Chemistry, AMU.
