I'm fortunate to work with excellent people; meet some of them here.

Meet awesomeness!

Many great people have decided to work with me on various projects. I'm truly grateful to these individuals for enriching my working life so much. If you're interested in joining the ranks of these amazing people as a PhD student or post doc, then check the open positions. If you're interested in a master's project, then just contact me.
