Marek Kuś was born in Warsaw in 1955. He got his education and all
degrees in physics at the University of Warsaw. With vast international
experience, working in the US, Germany and France he is now a prominent
theoretical physicist running an active group of young scientists at the
Center for Theoretical Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Several of his
former PhD students are already pursuing successful and independent
His research interests are exceptionally broad. He
started-off contributing to the application of stochastic processes in
quantum optics. Then, he made seminal contributions to the theory of
quantum chaotic systems. Recently his activity is concentrated on
mathematical physics problems of quantum information. On a number
of occasions he also diverted his attention to practical topics such as problems of ceramics
and applications of physical notions in social science.
Being a member of numerous committees he exerts a significant influence over Polish science.
