Doctoral defense of Bartosz Uniejewski

On June 13, 2023 a doctoral defense was held at the Faculty of Management. This was the first 1️⃣, historic dissertation defense at the PWr Doctoral School (more here). A week later, the Management and Quality Sciences Discipline Council awarded Bartosz Uniejewski a doctoral degree 👨‍🎓with a distinction 🏆 on the basis of his dissertation entitled Forecasting wholesale electricity prices to support decision-making in power companies: Use of regularization and forecast combinations. Congrats to Dr. Uniejewski, the supervisor Rafał Weron and the auxiliary supervisor Katarzyna Maciejowska!

Special thanks to the reviewers – Sławomir Śmiech from UE Kraków and James Taylor from the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford (both on the right in the photo above), who came to Wrocław, and Bogumił Kamiński from the Warsaw School of Economics on ZOOM – for countless questions and interesting discussion. Thanks also to the Chair of the Doctoral Committee (Adam Kasperski; on the left in the photo above) for his involvement in bringing the whole process to a happy end 😀

Bartek’s first task right after the defense … was to change a diaper. As befits a doctor, he completed the task in a phenomenal time of 2 minutes and 16 seconds 🤣
