Gabriel Poloniecki

No signs allowed to foresee that an Argentinian Industrial Engineer from the University of Buenos Aires could be one day Higher Education Attaché for France in Istanbul (Turkey) attached to the French Embassy. But, who can say where curiosity, keen interest in human relationships and engi- neering studies could lead to?

Between these two events, Gabriel Poloniecki got a Masters and a PhD in heat transfer and energy at the University of Paris 12 - Créteil (France), taught and performed research on these issues at the Universities of Paris 12 - Créteil and Evry (France) and was, among other activities, Vice Presi- dent of the University of Evry, in charge of International Affairs.
