Biography

With a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the Polish Academy of Sciences, Marek has done postdoctoral studies in Chemical Engineering at the California Institute Technology (as a Fulbright scholar), and Chemistry at Clarkson University. Marek was previously a visiting professor at the University of Kentucky and taught at Kentucky Wesleyan College and Brescia University. He was selected twice for Who's Who Among Americas Teachers. Marek is a member of the New England Association of Chemistry Teachers, American Association for Aerosol Research, American Chemical Society. He published over thirty papers on molecular processes involving very fine particles and interfaces.

When I moved to Maine, I became fascinated with marine environment, where atmosphere, land, and ocean converge. My professional interest has been attracted by such coastal aerosol phenomena as: fog, sea smoke, smog, haze and their health effects. My current research is devoted to microscopic phenomena playing an important role in natural cleansing of air by marine aerosols. I am a proponent of an active project-based science education; therefore my students have an opportunity to participate in research projects.
