## Statement

I graduated from Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland in 1983 in pure mathematics. I am a math teacher with more than 20 years experience. I started my interest in origami in 1995. My mathematical background pushed me towards geometric models. A mathematical structure of origami model and folding process as well as relation of origami to mathematics have been in the center of my interest from that time. I am also interested in educational applications of origami. I had lectures and workshop on education and theoretical aspects of origami at KOTE, Poland and Didaktik des Papierfalten in Freiburg, Germany, and OSME (Origami, Science, .Mathematics and Education), USA and Singapure I am an author of five origami books and several booklets. I participated in the large international origami exhibition “Masters of Origami” in Salzburg 2005 and Hamburg 2007.
