Hello, my name is Ladislav, Laco for short, and I will be your guide during the 50th International Chemistry Olympiad! I am 26 years old. I represented Slovakia at the IChO three times between 2009 and 2011 and I’m very excited to have the opportunity to be a part of it again when it’s in my home country. I have studied Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, moving on to a PhD at the University College London. I am currently in my third year, on an exchange at the National University of Singapore. 我在新加坡也学了一点儿汉语，但是我还说得不太好。My hobbies include hiking, reading, playing video games and learning new things in general. I hope you have a great and memorable stay in Slovakia and the Czech Republic, and I will do my best to ensure that! I’m looking forward to meeting you and wish you the best of luck at the Olympiad!
