née Gąsowska.

My main interests are Liquid Crystals and teaching. Liquid Crystals captivated my interest for many years for their beauty and multiple applications. Nowadays my interest is focused on developing teaching to help Chemistry students realise their potential as scientists and discover the incredible world of possibilities that Chemistry offers.
