Awards & Distinctions

I truly enjoy my work and I always try to do my best. In academia one has to treasure their own self-motivation, because our hard work often doesn’t bring any tangible results for a long time.

This is why it’s fantastic to receive positive feedback and feel appreciated for the work done. I am grateful for all bigger and smaller distinctions and awards I was honoured to receive in the last years, so I am proud to share some of them here.
