Thanks for taking your time to view this homepage contents and to learn about the exciting ongoing research activities in my research group.
I think that training undergraduate and graduate students is a great pleasure and I stimulate them to exercise considerable creative freedom. Accordingly, students in my group learn to be independent and highly motivated scientists, who are ready for different scientific challenges.
