Łukasz Stawarz is working predominantly on the high energy astrophysics. His scientific interests include cosmological evolution of active galaxies, physics of relativistic plasma in the Universe, as well as radiative processes and particle acceleration mechanisms in various astrophysical system. He is an affiliated member of the Fermi/LAT Collaboration since 2009, and of the H.E.S.S. Collaboration since 2006. During the last 10 years he participated in about 30 accepted observational programs facilitating the major modern astrophysical observatories. He attended about 60 international meetings, and is the author or co-author of about 100 refereed publications.

What I have done at ISAS & what I would like to do at ISAS
During his first year in ISAS (2010), Łukasz Stawarz continued working in the Fermi/LAT Collaboration, focusing however on the projects conducted by the ISAS and Waseda Fermi/LAT teams. This work resulted in about 10 refereed publications with the ISAS afilliation. In addition, we was continuing his individual research on different aspects of theoretical astrophysics (several papers in press or just submitted). He also gave invited talks on several international meetings, and submitted several observational projects (Suzaku, HESS, etc.).
Łukasz Filip Stawarz was born on July 26, 1976, in Kraków, Poland. Since March 15, 2010, he is working as the International Young Fellow at the Institute of Space Astronautical Science, JAXA (Sagamihara, Japan)
