How Long Have You Been in the U.S.? Since 2003
How Long Have You Been at SIUE? Since 2009
What Do You Like Most About SIUE? Everything here is centered on the campus and separate from the city. There is so much development available as a faculty member and I get the chance to be a primary member of my research, not secondhand.
What Do You Find To Be the Biggest Difference Between the U.S. and Your Home Country? Sheer size of America is bigger than Europe and there is a huge difference in the healthcare system.
Interesting Facts: I wanted to be an actor in the fourth grade and in high school I wanted to be a doctor. I ended up being a professor.
