Michal Kucewicz was born in 1986 in Gdansk. In 2005 he completed International Baccalaureate programme in Topolowka (III High School in Gdańsk). Thanks to the G. D. Fahrenheit scholarship, he moved to the United Kingdom to study neuroscience. He received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from the Cambridge University, and his doctoral degree from the University of Bristol specializing in electrophysiology of memory and cognitive functions of the brain. His doctoral thesis was focused on the mechanisms of working memory as studied on the level of electrical activity of neuronal networks. Following the doctoral studies he continued the research on memory at Mayo Clinic in the USA working with invasive recordings in epilepsy patients. He returned to Poland in 2018 to set up Brain and Mind Electrophysiology laboratory in Multimedia Systems Department, faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics, at the Gdansk University of Technology. His projects develop technology for electrical stimulation of the brain for memory enhancement in patients suffering from epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. The goal of his research is to discover the mechanisms of human memory and mind.
The passion of his life is evangelization.
