In 2015, he graduated from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Robotics of the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow in the field of Mechanical Engineering and obtained a master's degree in the field of rope transport. In the same year, he began doctoral studies at the Faculty of Mining and Geoengineering of the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow in the field of Civil Engineering.
Since 2017, Mateusz Dudek has been a part of prof. Sroka's team at the Strata Mechanics Research Institute Polish Academy of Sciences in Krakow. He deals with the issues of surface protection against the effects of underground exploitation and mine closures. He is interested in widely understood geomechanics and mining geotechnics. He is a co-organizer of the Altbergbau-Kolloquium conference (concerning the problems of the old mining) and the conference of Stanisław Knothe (regarding problems of rock mass deformation).
MSc Mateusz Dudek is the author and co-author of 9 scientific papers, several engineering projects and expertise in coal, ore mining, salt mining as well as civil engineering and geotechnics, carried out in Poland and abroad. Also, he is attending in two international research projects.
