Marcin’s work focuses on digital-to-human interactions and the creative use of new digital technologies. His work includes accessible digital interfaces for public consultation, sensing environments and data visualisation. He is currently working on a range of funded research projects that explore how new technologies can create ways for people to engage with place-based information in a creative and inclusive way. 
Marcin was recently involved in two distinct projects, the Plan Our Street project which explored an innovative approach to public consultations with the use of readily available and accessible digital interfaces (QR codes and AI Chatbots), and (ii) the Green Minds project (UIA funded) where he explored new ways of public engagement in green spaces utilising sensing technologies, digital tools and data-driven interfaces to increase people's connectedness with the place.
Currently, Marcin is involved in The Electric Seaways project where he helps to develop LoraWAN-based sensors measuring seawater conductivity in marinas equipped with electric boat chargers. The scope of his work also involves the rollout of the LoraWAN gateway network across the south of England as well as the deployment of autonomous air and water quality sensing equipment.

Research Experience
Research Assistant - The Electric Seaways (current)
About project:
The Electric Seaway project will create the infrastructure necessary to power the region’s ever-growing fleet of electric maritime vessels. It will be targeted at leisure and commercial vessels under 24m in size, boats which are a common feature of the UK’s 120 commercial ports and 400 non-cargo handling ports. By enabling those vessels to move to clean energy, the £3.2million project will not only support the Maritime 2050 decarbonisation goals but prevent an estimated 300 tonnes of CO2 from being released into the environment each year. Learn more about the project.
Research and Development Project Manager - Plan Our Street project (past)
About project:
Plan Our Street is an innovative tool created to help with planning consultations. It aims to change the way we interact with planning consultation processes and to give voice to the members of the public about future developments in their local areas. Learn more about the project.
Research Assistant - Green Minds - Living Lab (past)
About project:
Green Minds Living Lab aims to redefine the future of green space in Plymouth by developing a series of site-specific digital experiments across the city that aim to create a better model of civic engagement and governance within the urban green space. Learn more about the project.
Research Assistant - Breathe IoT (past)
About project:
The project aimed to understand if the digital sensing technology can help people in rural communities breathe more easily, by sharing breathing data in an IoT ‘in the wild’ testbed network. The project took a partnership approach by working with patient support groups, and SWIN: a low-power IoT testbed in isolated rural communities in Cornwall. Learn more about the project.
Research Assistant - Health Technology Community Pop-up (past)
The project aimed to address local health inequalities and social deprivation using digital technology and eHealth solutions. This included companion robots as well as apps and internet-based health and welfare resources. Learn more about the project.
