Even though I am still fairly young (31) and only four years away from my PhD, I have already been recognized for my academic service and hold editorial positions, have won various awards, and also held several professional functions, such as memberships in various institutional committees or landing a Head position of the Open Innovation Systems lab of COBIK. I firmly believe in proactivity and operate by a guiding principle of ‘Better well done than well said’.
