Teaching

One of my core principles is that university teaching should be research-oriented, informed by regular feedback, and useful for guiding students’ own learning. Students need to develop the skills to synthesize complex knowledge, connect theory to practice, and challenge established knowledge with their own questions. The interactive dialogue with students is very important to me, and I teach students how to apply different theories and methods to concrete cases.
