The mentoring of young students is a very important responsibility for a researcher because they are the future society. The environmental awareness of these younger generations is the only way to achieve a more sustainable human system for our planet. I take very seriously this responsibility and I keep a very active collaboration with undergraduate students of my University. Below you can find information about these great guys!
