Application for coverage

Policies in research and education

I believe that the fundamental function of a university professor is to produce and transmit knowledge through scholarly activities. In addition to research and publishing, I truly believe that teaching and mentoring are crucial and ultimately the most enriching parts of our profession. Good teaching, like good research, aims to bridge the gap between theory and the world around us. I embrace these opportunities to inspire and motivate those around me while bridging this gap.

Message to students

Be ready to work hard and learn about new places and ideas! I look forward to seeing you as a participant in my courses soon.
