Dr. Adriana Gregusova

I was born and raised in Slovakia (which used to be a part of Czechoslovakia prior to 1993).
I've been happily married since 2001. We have two awesome sons: Anton (15) and Michal (19).

It is my calling to be an advocate for gifted students because of my own experience as a student. During my high school and college years, I participated in many conferences and summer institutes (the most influential by far was The European School of Quantum Chemistry in 1999, organized by Prof. Bjorn O. Roos, who at the time was a member of the Nobel Prize selection committee). I believe our students need to be exposed to challenging ideas perhaps slightly exceeding their current knowledge level in an environment that stimulates the natural curiosity they have been gifted with.
