After obtaining a degree in physics, Michal developed his academic career in materials science and engineering (PhD 1988; DSc 1996) and was appointed at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow (Poland). Since 1998, his research work was mainly associated with multidisciplinary Institute for Microstructural and Mechanical Process Engineering of the University of Sheffield (UK), where he worked for more than 15 years focusing on materials characterization and multiscale modelling.

He has been involved in a variety of research projects related mainly to through process modelling and optimization in thermomechanical processing and friction stir welding dealing with tribology and corrosion issues, heat transfer and stress-strain relationships, microstructure evolution and phase transformations. His current scientific interests include also processing of nanocrystallised multilayered metallic structures and development of physically based modelling methodologies for investigation of multiphysical phenomena in additive manufacturing.

He received the scientific title Professor of Engineering conferred by the President of the Republic of Poland in 2011, has served or is currently on many Faculty based and International Conference Scientific/Executive Committees and is a Fellow Member of the Institute of Materials and Mining, UK. Michal later joined Birmingham City University from AGH University of Science and Technology in 2016. He is co-author of over 150 publications including one book, research monograph and several book chapters.
