My current work is funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie SkłodowskaCurie grant agreement No. 665778 via the Narodowe Centrum Nauki (National Science Center, Poland) within the Polonez fellowship UMO2016/21/P/ST2/04035 "Properties of strongly coupled quantum fluids". The scientific goals of the project can be found in my research proposal. 
flow data, is found in the normal phase just above the transition temperature to superfluidity (see the red curve with band in the figure). It can be as small as 0.5 in natural units, thus being comparable with the hottest matter created on earth, the QuarkGluon Plasma. Both these strongly coupled quantum systems constitute the most perfect fluids that we know. 

from purely Gaussian white noise observable nonGaussian cumulants can be generated. This is demonstrated for the case of the purely diffusive dynamics of critical mode fluctuations near the QCD critical point in a rapidly evolving medium. Without nonlinear interactions nonGaussian cumulants such as the kurtosis remain zero (see red squares in the figures), while for the fully nonlinear dynamics a pronounced temperature dependence in the kurtosis develops (see blue points in the left figure). Finitesize and finitetime effects lead to retardation and nonequilibrium effects (see right figure, shift to later times and less pronounced minimum), and a critical scaling behavior different from thermodynamic expectations is observed. 

toward equilibrium dominated measurements of fluctuation observables in heavyion collisions. The timeevolution of critical mode fluctuations was studied in a QCDassisted transport approach based on nonequilibrium chiral fluid dynamics and the effective action of lowenergy QCD, taking the nonperturbative nature of QCD near the phase transition into account. From this equilibration time study the phase boundary and the region near the QCD critical point can clearly be identified (see blue vs. nonblue regions in the figure). The moderate increase near the critical point (red area)  the equilibration times remain smaller than 1 fm/c  suggests that phenomena associated with critical slowing down might be less pronounced than previously expected. 

In the fall semester of 2017, I gave a monographic lecture related to my project about the physics of "Ultracold Fermi gases". It was intended for Ph.D. students at the University of Wrocław with the following syllabus. The problems tasks for each of the lectures can be found here: Problem tasks  Session 1 Problem tasks  Session 2 Problem tasks  Session 3 Problem tasks  Session 4
