Prof. Ryszard Hejmanowski,
AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, Poland


Ryszard Hejmanowski currently works as a professor at the Faculty of Mining Surveying and Environmental Engineering, AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow/Poland. He does research in Petroleum Engineering, Mining Engineering and Civil Engineering. He is particularly interested in the:
• Prediction of land subsidence for the hard coal, copper ore, salt, gas and oil deposits;
• Risk assessment on human/nature transformed terrains;
• Monitoring of land subsidence over mineral deposits in mining areas;
• IT Systems developing (GIS) for building damage risk assessment -and management on mining areas.
He did his PhD at the Technical University Clausthal in Germany in 90ties, where he was working for almost 4 years. His current projects are 'A proposed model of the upward movement voids to the surface, causing discontinuous deformations' and ‘Analysis of impact of mining tremors on surface subsidence’.
