Jolanta Mizera-Pietraszko is an assistant professor on the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science, Opole University. Her research interests are mainly focused on computational linguistics, natural language processing, multilingual search engines, parallel languages, bi-text processing, bilingual question-answering systems, and multilingual digital libraries.

She invented a language and system-independent asymmetric translation technology called “An Approach to Analysis of Machine Translation Precision by Using Language Pair Phenomena” (invention number P387576, registered and published by the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland). She is a registered FP7 expert for the European Commission in Brussels; an expert in R&D projects for the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, National Center of R&D, Polish Agency of R&D; and an evaluator of English course books for the Ministry of Education. Also, as an advisor for the ministerial Center of Polish Education Development Abroad, she is responsible for teaching quality standards in Polish schools all over the world.

Under the ERASMUS program, she initiated and coordinated bilateral agreements between her university and Roskilde University, Denmark, and has extended student exchange with Las Palmas de Grand Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain. In addition, she reviews IT books for the British Computer Society. She is a fellow of the IEEE Technical Committee on Digital Libraries; Information Retrieval Facilities (Vienna, Austria); and the British Computer Society Information Retrieval Specialist Group (London, UK).

She has recently been invited to serve on international program committees of conferences in the UK, Czech Republic, India, and Poland. Her projects have received recognition from the university (five scholarships), the European Union, and scientific institutions abroad.
