Wolfram Summer School


Nikola Bukowiecka

Fundamental Physics Track

Class of 2022


Nikola Bukowiecka is a physicist at the Space Research Centre, Polish Academy of Sciences, where she is a member of the Laboratory for Solar System Physics and Astrophysics.

There, she is a physicist at the GLOWS project, which is a part of NASA’s mission IMAP, IBEX.

She is also an AOCS engineer at Creotech Instruments S.A., where she helps to develop control systems for satellites, including the POLON (Polish propulsion module) and the EagleEye microsatellite system.

She is also responsible for mission planning.

She wrote her first degree physics diploma titled “Divertor heat flux measurement using thermographic systems in stellarator Wendelstein 7-X” at Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics at Greifswald, Germany, doing research on the plasma fusion reactor Wendelstein 7-X. For her second degree diploma, she is writing and conducting research at the GLOWS project, and it’s titled “Probability distributions of event fluxes observed within sky surveys by sampling experiments in space.”

Her engineering thesis from automatics and robotics was titled “Attitude robust control system for an Earth observation satellite.”

She has earned awards in competitions organized by Huawei (Seeds for the Future) and Intel Technology (New Technologies for Women), and this year, she was honored with an international title, “Pole of the XXI century” in the category of “Innovation and new technologies.”

She is also a member of Polish Astrobiology Society and the president of the Physics Science Club (University of Szczecin).

Her heart also lies with animals, and that’s why she is an activist and a volunteer for animal rights.

She can be found on Instagram and LinkedIn.
