Dr Paulina D Rakowska joined the National Biofilms Innovation Centre (NBIC) in September 2020 as the Research and Innovation Development Manager.

Paulina started her scientific career in 2006, when she joined the Biometrology Group at the UK’s National Physical Laboratory (NPL), where she led a number of projects concerned with the detection and quantitation of small and low abundance molecules in complex matrices. In 2013, she transitioned to the National Centre of Excellence in Mass Spectrometry Imaging (NiCE-MSI) at NPL, where she initiated and lead the area of metrology for microbial mass spectrometry imaging. Paulina holds MSc in Biotechnological Processes obtained from the Wroclaw University of Technology in Poland and a PhD in chemical biology from University College London, UK. She has a vest experience in analytical R&D metrology and a portfolio of successful grant proposals and delivery of projects of different sizes, timescales and complexities, at the interface of physics, biology, chemistry and nanotechnology.
