Personal profile

Dr Jaroszkiewicz graduated in Chemistry, University of Warsaw, Poland and obtained her PhD from the Physics Department, Nottingham University after completing her doctoral thesis on the NMR of entangled polymers, supervised by Prof E R Andrew, FRS and W Derbyshire.

Her postdoctoral research involved work in the MRI group led by Prof Sir P Mansfield in the Physics Department at Nottingham University and later in the Food Science Department From 1994 Dr Jaroszkiewicz has been a lecturer and then senior lecturer in Pharmaceutical Chemistry in the School of Pharmacy, De Montfort University where she has taught many aspects of physical pharmaceutical chemistry and spectroscopy.

She has also been in charge of MPharm final year projects and for several years was an admissions tutor for the School of Pharmacy. She has had a long-standing, successful collaboration with the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the Medical University in Poznan, Poland, and is a co-author of many peer reviewed papers on the effects of ionising radiation on drugs, NMR relaxation behaviour of natural polymers and NMR of biopolymers.
