What is good teaching for you?
For me, good teaching means arousing the interest of the students so that they start ask themselves and others questions and continue to research independently.

What is it about your favorite city that fascinates you?I have come to love and appreciate Saigon over the past few years. I love the traditions, but also the flexibility and opportunities that I discover in this city. It helps me to find myself as a person between two cultures.
