Dr. Simon Friederich
PhDs in Philosophy and Physics
What you teach at University College Groningen:
Ethiopian bread, lentils and cabbage; pizza; burgers with meat-replacements.
My favourite thing about Groningen is…
The open-mindedness of the people here and the calm, work-friendly atmosphere all over the place.
My favourite place in the world is…
Quite a few. I love, for example, many landscapes in Scandinavia, but also the mountains and valleys in Ticino and Northern Italy, the vineyards in the Ahr and Rhine valleys and university towns such as Göttingen and Groningen.
Something most people don’t know about me is...
I'm not only a classical music and prog rock enthusiast but also a death metal fan. I love brutal stuff such as that delivered by the likes of Death, Opeth, Gorguts and (in mainstream heavy metal) Judas Priest.
My biggest achievement is...
Being a funny, sometimes comforting, daddy for my daughters.
When I’m not working I’m busy...
Being a funny daddy, hiking, reading, playing the piano (much less since the children have arrived).
My inspiration is...
My wife Andrea in her empathy, honesty, cleverness and the passion in all that she does.
