  • $\begingroup$ @njuffa All I did was Google search and nothing relevant came up. I am no expert in these endeavours so I don’t know where to dig properly. $\endgroup$ Mar 31, 2021 at 9:33

    $\begingroup$ The wikipedia page List of notable Romani people cites Sofya Kovalevskaya as being one quarter Romani, though her dedicated wikipedia page is less precise, stating only that "There may also have been some Romani ancestry on the father's side." $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ IMHO, before speaking of physicists, not to speak of "famous physicists", a fundamental fact is that, till a recent past, Romani people weren't going to school, therefore were only very few to be able to read and write. $\endgroup$ Apr 7, 2021 at 14:38
