Teaching Philosophy

My main goal is to create an open, non-discriminatory, and friendly learning environment in which students can develop a critical thinking and an increasingly awareness of the world they live in.

Most Rewarding Moment

When lectures trigger a lively debate among students and they appreciate the mutual exchange of ideas even in their free time.
