Malgosia graduated from the University of Poznan in Poland and then received DPhil from the University of Oxford, researching four-wave mixing processes in gaseous media. She was a research fellow at the Department of Engineering Sciences at the University of Oxford, Optoelectronics Research Centre at Southampton and the Department of Physics at the University of Exeter. In 2010 she was appointed to a personal chair at the University of Southampton. Her research on nonlinear materials and photorefractive crystals was recognised by the awards of a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin fellowship, followed by an EPSRC Advanced Fellowship. In 2020, Malgosia was nominated to became an SPIE Fellow.
Malgosia is a group leader of Soft Photonics Systems group, pursuing research on soft matter for photovoltaics, life sciences and new generation of optical instruments.
Her recent and current research interests include:
- photovoltaic optical modulators
- optical analyser for characterisation of soft matter,
- liquid crystalline biofilms
- soft matter colloids
