Just moved to London for my new job. Still settling in :-)
I'm Polish! As English is not my native language, please forgive me my grammar errors or weird vocabulary - hey, I still think I'm doing a pretty good job! :-) I came to the USA for graduate school. I received my Master's degree in Poland and now I am finishing my PhD in Applied Mathematics at Caltech. UPDATE: just defended, so you can call me a Doctor now :-)
I believe I am an outgoing, friendly and fun person with a good sense of humor. I'm somewhat of a loner, but I still enjoy interacting with people and hanging out with friends. I tend to be contemplative and science is a very big part of my life.
In a relationship I look for love, affection, care, support and understanding. Naturally, I offer the same thing in return. My ideal girlfriend will also be my best friend.
I have a constant lust for knowledge. I like learning new things, acquiring new skills, getting to know new cultures and their history. I believe it is important to have hobbies not directly related to your work. This makes you an interesting person, takes your mind off your work and provides topics for conversation. You have an interesting hobby - great, I'd love to learn about it and maybe even do it with you!
While camping is not my cup of tea, I absolutely love hiking. I am a Nature lover and I feel a need to be in the wild every now and then. I love hiking in the mountains and enjoy beautiful views. The best hike I've done in the LA area was Mt. Baldy. I miss the kind of mountains we have in Poland ...
