Member of Academia Europaea since 2014.[2] Życzkowski was a member of the Commission on European Matters PAU created by the Polish Academy of Learning. Życzkowski has contributed to quantum chaos, quantum measurement, entropy, and entanglement,[3][4] the theory of voting [5] and jointly with Wojciech Słomczyński[6] designed the Jagiellonian Compromise - a voting system for the Council of the European Union. He worked on complex Hadamard matrices,[7]numerical range and numerical shadow.[8] His father is Michał Życzkowski.[9]
