My name is Arkadiusz Bednarz and I come from Podkarpacie. Since 2014, I have been a research and teaching worker at the Rzeszow University of Technology (PRz), at the Department of Aerospace Engineering. I defended my PhD in September 2019 with a thesis on the fatigue strength of aircraft turbine engine blades, in the context of operational damage. I am a graduate of Aviation and Astronautics (PRz) and Mechatronics (University of Rzeszow). I can also enter a certificate in management in engineering, issued by MIT, in my CV. My current research interests are focused on the topic of a hydrogen-powered jet engine and the impact of fuel conversion on the loads on other components of the aircraft engine. My experience with the Fulbright program began in 2018 when I became a Junior Research Award program’s scholar at Lehigh University (Bethlehem, PA). I was also a participant in the Fulbright Buddy program, during which I “looked after” and supported two American scientists coming to Poland. Privately, I am interested in traveling, gliding and creating electronic music.
