Teaching philosophy
I consider the role of the teacher as both a privilege and a challenge. I believe it’s all about giving stimuli and imposing limits. It means fighting against indifference, giving starting points, demanding a good research process, supporting human struggling, encouraging perseveration, predicting workflow, and being open to unexpected results.

Teaching means instilling passion and designing one’s own path to do it.
