Ewa Gorecka is a professor at the Faculty of Chemistry at the University of Warsaw. Her research focuses on the study of liquid crystals, gels and nanoparticles using various X-ray diffraction and microscopic methods to study the structure of these materials at the nanoscale. She is also interested in the mechanisms of spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking in soft matter. Her latest publications concern the use of X-ray diffraction methods to solve the structure of chiral phases with limited positional order.
