In 2007 Felicjan Rydzak joined the Forestry Program, where he is involved in the EC GEO-BENE Project "Global Earth Observation - Benefit Estimation: Now, Next and Emerging." Dr. Rydzak graduated in management and manufacturing engineering from Wroclaw University of Technology, Poland. During his studies he was a scholar of the Socrates/Erasmus Exchange Programme and fulfilled a one-year study at the Nottingham Trent University, UK. Recently he received his PhD at Wroclaw University of Technology. In 2005/2006 he carried out a research project financed by the Research Council of Norway on resilience in production systems at Agder University College, Security and Quality in Organizations group. His current research interests include modeling and simulation of complex systems, system dynamics, changes in organizations, and interactive learning environments.
