My love for science and passion for teaching stems from my DNA, coming from generations of researchers and teachers. I am a keen advocate for environmental sustainability due to its prominent role in all aspects of our life, including politics, diplomacy, and global health. I draw immense pleasure from sparking curiosity in my students and seeing them set and achieve new educational goals. For me, contributing to the development of future leaders in various fields is the best kind of leadership. I am happy to be a member of the creative and professional team of ADA University.
