I’m Polish, I come from Gdańsk. Even though I have spent over half of my life outside of Poland, I maintain very close ties with my home country (regular visits, science communication, running workshops etc). I have also been intensely involved in working with and for the Polish diaspora, particularly Polish students and academics living abroad.

What have I been involved in?

My efforts have been recognised with the Outstanding Pole in England, Wales and Northern Ireland prize (Wybitny Polak w Anglii, Walii i Irlandii Północnej), in the Science category, awarded by Teraz Polska and organised by the Polish City Club and PANGEA Magazine. I have also been awarded the Honorary Prize from Dziennik Polski – “Człowiek roku”.
