  • My passion for research is rooted in the research questions, and I am enthusiastic about to find out whether answering these questions would have implications for the real community or world scenario. I also believe critical thinking would help us to be a thinker and come up with new ideas, theories and projects that would advance the field and telling us what we are supposed to do, eventually to add new knowledge. Besides of critical thinking, I believe that we should keep an open mind, which is also one reason I have been doing cross-discipline studies. As I believe that interdisciplinary and cross disciplinary collaboration is a good way to expand our knowledge of some certain research questions, but also develop new ideas and some interesting points.
