Teaching

In addition to research I am interested in teaching about experimental methodology, especially for students in humanities where this type of framework is often absent. I believe that even if one does not want to conduct experimental research, understanding the working principles of other type of methodologies is essential for fostering successful interdisciplinary collaboration between the humanities and science. (Of course, this applies to both: also the students in science would benefit from knowing why things are done the way they are done in humanities.)
