His professionalism is inspiring. I felt he genuinely cared in giving me an education with high quality. I also feel he was accessible answering e-mails and meeting with me when necessary. He provided the space for the continuation of my personal and professional growth. I am very glad I had the pleasure of having him as a professor.”
