Doctor of economic sciences, assistant professor at the Department of Logistics at the Wroclaw University of Economics and Business. His scientific interests focus on logistics, primarily in the area of non-standard and innovative applications and supply chain management. He has been climbing mountains for over 20 years. He took part in dozens of expeditions on all continents. He conquered six eight-thousanders and almost all the peaks of so called seven summits (except Mt. Everest). He is a member of the national team of the Polish Mountaineering Association in mountaineering. In 2021, he published a scientific monograph titled Expedition project – logistic approach (Polskie Wydawnictwo Ekonomiczne), in which he combined knowledge in the field of project management and logistics management and the methodology of strategic analyzes, thanks to which he set a new direction of research in the area of expeditionary projects.

Expeditionary projects are complex projects, combining both high-tech and traditional equipment, requiring varying competences of team members, a high degree of complex organisational processes, including logistics, and the need to operate in diverse cultural contexts. The course of an expedition project is to a large extent conditioned by events that are difficult and unpredictable, therefore subject to risks both to the safety of the participants and to success. Hence, based on practical experience and scientific studies, the authors have undertaken the task of identifying areas of resilience formation in expedition projects. This is the main objective of the consideration.
