I am a researcher preoccupied with making this world a nicer place. And I hope my professional background as well as energy and motivation directed towards gaining new knowledge and experiences might help me along the way. I am always open to new ideas, discussions and suggestions and I am willing to work and cooperate in multidisciplinary and multicultural environments, since I believe that only the combined efforts can lead to satisfactory solutions.
