A Teacher at Heart

Show notes

In this episode, Nikola Radojičić talks about his work as a mathematics teacher and deputy principal at an elementary school in Nikšić, Montenegro, as well as his decision to return to university to pursue his Master’s Degree in Mathematics. We learn about how the COVID-19 pandemic affected his teaching and had him devise new and innovative extracurricular activities to ensure students did not fall behind. We also hear about his research, which focuses on ‘kissing circles’, inversion and planimetry, as well as some of its applications. Finally, Nikola shares with us what his expectations are for the 10th HLF, which laureates he hopes to meet and why.

The Heidelberg Laureate Forum has a single purpose: To provide some of the brightest minds in mathematics and computer science with the space and time to make connections and find inspiration. The HLFF Spotlight series shines a light on some of the brilliant young researchers attending the event.
