Since 2000 she has cooperated with the team from the Gliwice Radiocarbon Laboratory, than with the Poznan Radiocarbon Laboratory and recently also with Circe AMS Laboratory in Caserta. Dr Michalska’s doctoral thesis was devoted to the problem of dating carbonate mortars, their preparation, petrography and geochemistry. For her work on the analysis of mortars from Poland and Israel she received the Prize of the Prime Minister for distinguished doctoral theses. In recent years, she has studied the modelling of processes occurring in materials selected for dating, at different pretreatment stages.
