Prof. Zbigniew Kulka was born in 1943 in Cracow (Poland). He received his M.Sc. degree in 1967 from Warsaw University of Technology (Poland), the Ph.D. degree in 1980 and the D.Sc. (habilitation) degree in 1996 from the Institute of Nuclear Research (Poland). In 2013 he received the Professor’s title from the President of the Poland Republic.

Prof. Kulka started his scientific career in nuclear electronics at the Institute of Nuclear Research. From 1974-1994 he also worked as the visiting scientist – usually a few months a year – at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) (Swizerland), High Energy Physics Institute (Vienna) and in the Laboratoire de Physique Corpusculaire Universite de Clermont Ferrand (France). As a team member, he participated in UA-1 international CERN project, which resulted  discovery of the W & Z particles and a Nobel Price awarded to the team leader – Carlo Rubbia.

In 1997 Prof. Kulka was appointed to the Head of Electroacoustics Division position at Warsaw University of Technology,  and  started his teaching and carried scientific activity in the digital audio field. His research interests were mainly focused on digital audio signal processing, as well as designing and performing simulations of sigma-delta modulators for applications in the high resolution Analog-to-Digital and Digital-to-Analog audio converters. Through his career he was a board member, and from 2007 to 2011 a chairman of the Polish Section of the Audio Engineering Society (AES). For 5 years (2001-2016) he had been a Secretary of Development of Radiocommunications and Multimedia Technology Foundation.

Prof. Kulka published books (as a co-author)  and several monographs e. g. Analog Integrated Circuits (five editions), Applications of Operational Amplifiers (two editions) and Analog-to-Digital and Digital-to-Analog Converters, as well as about 90 scientific papers. For 2 years (2014-2016) he had been the Associate Editor for the Archives of Acoustics, the quarterly journal of the Polish Academy of Science, as well as a member of many international conference scientific committees.
