Teaching has always been my passion. In my teaching, I try to get the students excited about the subject matter. My intention is to make challenging material accessible and relevant for the students. I believe that theory should always be linked with practice through real-world examples and applications using appropriate computer software. Establishing channels of communication with the students and collaborating with them in order to achieve successful learning outcomes is always my priority.
