Daniel Bernoulli
Daniel Bernoulli, born in Groningen, Netherlands January 29, 1700, discovered one of the basic principles of fluid dynamics. Although he expressed an early interest in mathematics, Bernoulli earned a degree in medicine in 1721.

His  fascination with mathematics is most likely related to his father and uncle both being prominent mathematicians. In 1725 Bernoulli  gave way to this interest and became a professor of mathematics at the Russian Academy in St. Petersburg.
Bernoulli is considered to be one of the earliest proponents of Newtonian mechanics, and he utilized these concepts in formulating his theories on the flow of fluids.

He spent the remainder of his life teaching, first at the university of Groningen and later at Basel, Switzerland where he died on March 17, 1782.
