"Never let fear of disappointment stop you from trying"

My interest in research started during my studies. It’s inspiring working with the latest theories and insights, which have been researched and discovered in the field. Applying these insights helps to get a grip on the complexity of the daily reality, or even to approach the future in some form.

Would you like to collaborate or do you have any questions?
