 Who is your favourite historian/scientist/literary figure and why?

I have no favourite; its always interesting to learn about the different figures throughout history and how they impact how we know the world. I was discussing the Pythagorean theory with students last week (maybe you remember, a squared plus b squared equals c squared)… Pythagoras of Samos sounds like a fascinating man. He was born in Greece in 570BC. People believe that he was the founding member of a secret religious mathematical cult which was based on the belief of numbers. Many of the mathematical principals that we use today are based on findings from this society. However, other beliefs such as the sin of eating beans have been since abandoned.

What is your favourite thing about living in Warsaw?

I am enjoying exploring the city and especially love all the different parks that I can walk around.

What do you miss most from home?

Seeing my family and the shops.
