Pawel (Paul) Matusz

I combine neuroscience, neurotechnology (games, VR, tablets) and mathematical modelling to understand & improve education, brain and sensory rehabilitation. I completed my PhD in Psychological Sciences at Birkbeck College London in 2013 (summa cum laude).

Pawel (Paul) Matusz

Country: Switzerland
Experiance and achievements:
Learning environments like classrooms are cluttered, busy environments. They are also profoundly multisensory in nature. I am interested in how children develop their skills in paying attention to multisensory information, from the underlying neural mechanisms to consequences for cognitive skills. Attention is crucial as it helps us learn but also directs our senses to currently important information. As such, my group (Group for Real World Neuroscience) and I, currently at Institute of Information Systems at the University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland (HES-SO Valais) explore how the development of audio-visual attention mechanisms contributes to the neuroplasticity associated with gaming and VR interventions. This way, I identify how to gauge the developing attention to support healthy child development and address learning difficulties. In 2020 I was awarded a career prize from a renowned Swiss foundation supporting neuropsychological and neuropsychiatric developmental research (redacted till August 2021) for my work on EEG biomarkers of children’s learning. Across 2019-21 I guest-edited two special issues on approaches to improving ecological validity of neuroscience, each in the field’s flagship journal: cognitive and educational neuroscience. My accompanying 2019 theoretical paper (Matusz et al. 2019 JOCN) has been very well received, already being cited >60 times. I consider these latter successes some of my greatest achievements so far, as they reflect my international peers’ recognition of my value as a scientist and my contributions to both fundamental and applied fields of human neuroscience. You can peruse my scientific publications on Google Scholar - https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=vm66aCkAAAAJ&hl=en - and become more familiar with the research done by my group by visiting our website - https://groupforrealworldneuroscience.wordpress.com/.
Area of industrial/economic/bussiness activity:
I am a neuroscientist interested in using the latest advances from neuroscience, neurotechnology and mathematical modelling to identify biomarkers of healthy and atypical learning (and learners), in health and disease. I am particularly intersted in biomarkers of learning that are robust against individuals' linguististic skills and their background.

Mariusz Skwarczynski

Doctorate, Organic Chemistry (22.11.1999) Wroclaw University of Technology, Department of Chemistry, Master of Science, Engineer Biotechnology Wroclaw University of Technology, Department of Chemistry

Mariusz Skwarczynski

Country: Australia
Experiance and achievements:
Mariusz Skwarczynski completed his Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1999 at Wroclaw University of Technology (Poland) under guidance of Prof. Barbara Lejczak (and Prof. Pawel Kafarski). His postdoctoral training began at Tokushima Bunri University (Japan) under the direction of Professor M. Nishizawa, where he studied the biomimetic total synthesis of anticancer agent paclitaxel. He then joined the laboratory of Professor Yoshiaki Kiso at Kyoto Pharmaceutical University (Japan) to study prodrugs of paclitaxel. In 2004 he was awarded with Japanese fellowship (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science postdoctoral fellowship) and research grant to conduct further research on paclitaxel. He developed novel classes of paclitaxel prodrugs: isotaxoids and phototaxels. He also developed an epimerization-free method for the synthesis of novel building blocks (isodipeptides) for solid phase peptide synthesis and these units have been commercialized by Merck-Novabiochem. In 2008 he joined Professor Istvan Toth group at University of Queensland (Australia) to work on drug, gene and vaccine delivery strategies. Since then his research is mainly focused on nanotechnology-based peptide vaccine delivery approaches. In 2010 he was awarded with University of Queensland Strategic Fund Research Fellowship. He has published over 140 peer-reviewed publications, including several book chapters and two books.

Pawel (Paul) Matusz

I combine neuroscience, neurotechnology (games, VR, tablets) and mathematical modelling to understand & improve education, brain and sensory rehabilitation. I completed my PhD in Psychological Sciences at Birkbeck College London in 2013 (summa cum laude).

Pawel (Paul) Matusz

Country: Switzerland
Experiance and achievements:
Learning environments like classrooms are cluttered, busy environments. They are also profoundly multisensory in nature. I am interested in how children develop their skills in paying attention to multisensory information, from the underlying neural mechanisms to consequences for cognitive skills. Attention is crucial as it helps us learn but also directs our senses to currently important information. As such, my group (Group for Real World Neuroscience) and I, currently at Institute of Information Systems at the University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland (HES-SO Valais) explore how the development of audio-visual attention mechanisms contributes to the neuroplasticity associated with gaming and VR interventions. This way, I identify how to gauge the developing attention to support healthy child development and address learning difficulties. In 2020 I was awarded a career prize from a renowned Swiss foundation supporting neuropsychological and neuropsychiatric developmental research (redacted till August 2021) for my work on EEG biomarkers of children’s learning. Across 2019-21 I guest-edited two special issues on approaches to improving ecological validity of neuroscience, each in the field’s flagship journal: cognitive and educational neuroscience. My accompanying 2019 theoretical paper (Matusz et al. 2019 JOCN) has been very well received, already being cited >60 times. I consider these latter successes some of my greatest achievements so far, as they reflect my international peers’ recognition of my value as a scientist and my contributions to both fundamental and applied fields of human neuroscience. You can peruse my scientific publications on Google Scholar - https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=vm66aCkAAAAJ&hl=en - and become more familiar with the research done by my group by visiting our website - https://groupforrealworldneuroscience.wordpress.com/.
Area of industrial/economic/bussiness activity:
I am a neuroscientist interested in using the latest advances from neuroscience, neurotechnology and mathematical modelling to identify biomarkers of healthy and atypical learning (and learners), in health and disease. I am particularly intersted in biomarkers of learning that are robust against individuals' linguististic skills and their background.

Mariusz Skwarczynski

Doctorate, Organic Chemistry (22.11.1999) Wroclaw University of Technology, Department of Chemistry, Master of Science, Engineer Biotechnology Wroclaw University of Technology, Department of Chemistry

Mariusz Skwarczynski

Country: Australia
Experiance and achievements:
Mariusz Skwarczynski completed his Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1999 at Wroclaw University of Technology (Poland) under guidance of Prof. Barbara Lejczak (and Prof. Pawel Kafarski). His postdoctoral training began at Tokushima Bunri University (Japan) under the direction of Professor M. Nishizawa, where he studied the biomimetic total synthesis of anticancer agent paclitaxel. He then joined the laboratory of Professor Yoshiaki Kiso at Kyoto Pharmaceutical University (Japan) to study prodrugs of paclitaxel. In 2004 he was awarded with Japanese fellowship (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science postdoctoral fellowship) and research grant to conduct further research on paclitaxel. He developed novel classes of paclitaxel prodrugs: isotaxoids and phototaxels. He also developed an epimerization-free method for the synthesis of novel building blocks (isodipeptides) for solid phase peptide synthesis and these units have been commercialized by Merck-Novabiochem. In 2008 he joined Professor Istvan Toth group at University of Queensland (Australia) to work on drug, gene and vaccine delivery strategies. Since then his research is mainly focused on nanotechnology-based peptide vaccine delivery approaches. In 2010 he was awarded with University of Queensland Strategic Fund Research Fellowship. He has published over 140 peer-reviewed publications, including several book chapters and two books.
