About me
I am a village teacher trying to do mathematics.
Research interests
Current
 Grassmannians, Hilbert Grassmannians and preserver problems related to Quantum Mechanics.
 Geometry of Linear Codes (joint project with Mariusz Kwiatkowski):
nondegenerate linear codes form interesting subsets in Grassmannians over finite fields.
 Zigzags in polytopes and embedded graphs (joint project with my student Adam Tyc).
This research is dedicated to the memory of my friend and mentor Michel Deza.
Former

Incidence geometry, pointline geometries related to buildings, for example, polar spaces and their Grassmannians.
Unfortunately, I was not succeed in this very interesting topic.
 Topology (dimension theory). It was my PhD.
