Alexandra Krawiec, PhD, FRSA


Alex was taking her first steps in media as an intern with BBC Manchester and with BBC Radio Scotland in Edinburgh. In 1990's she came to Edinburgh at an invitation from Wiktor Tomaszewski, one of the founders of the Polish Faculty of Medicine at Edinburgh University. As a result of that encounter she had a unique chance to meet, and befriend a few venerable Polish emigrants, among them general Stanislaw Maczek, and professor Leszek Kołakowski - a renowned Polish philosopher from University of Oxford, UK.

Alex was a consultant and a representative for EWTN (Eternal World Television Network) in eastern Europe. She worked for PTV (Polish national TV based in Poznan). While at PTV, in 1994 Alex conducted an interview with the victims of Rwanda genocide. In December 2008, during The United Nations Climate Conference, she had the honour to talk to Al Gore who was giving a lecture to a small audience at tmhe Polish Academy of Science (PAN). The meeting inspired Alexandra to start working on her film Passion for Life, featuring Sir David Attenborough. Alex conducted interviews with many prominent world scientists, among them: James Watson (the co-discoverer of the DNA structure), Peter Doherty (Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1996), Helga Nowotny, Marcus du Sautoy, Brian Green, and others. In 2012 she interviewed Rolf-Dieter Heuer (Director General of CERN) merely a week after the finding of Higgs Boson was announced. In 2013, Alex took part in an international integrated Mars analogue field mission simulation in the northern Sahara. In the same year she wrote a script and directed a documentary about the Project Mars mission. In 2014 Alex directed four films for the European Research Council (ERC), presenting outstanding Polish scientists. Alex is a TEDx speaker, and she has given a number of talks, among them three talks at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and had two of her films screened there.

Alex holds an M.A. in English Philology and a PhD in economics. She is a member of the International Documentary Association (IDA), MIT Women's League, Americans for the Arts Action Fund, and a member of the Austrian Space Forum (OeWF). She is fellow of the RSA (FRSA) and the RSA Polish Connector.
