“I have the strong belief that an diverse and inclusive research environment is crucial for excellence and innovation, and that respectful collaboration across boundaries (such as cultural, senior vs. junior) is essential to be internationally competitive as a excellence center in the field of AI. In my role, I would like to support hessian.AI in devising and implementing inclusion and empowerment policies and guidelines, provide opportunities for young scientists to become leaders in their field, and establish and live a diverse culture.”
