Wojciech received the PhD from Michigan State University in 1995, His
thesis, written under the direction of Ronald Fintushel, was concerned

containing essentially embedded 2-spheres. Wojciech's current research
focuses mainly on studying the structure of Donaldson and Seiberg-Witten
invariants of smooth low dimensional invariants.
