I always considered teaching a fulfilling task rather than a necessary burden. For this reason, in addition to my PhD studies I completed a CAS in teaching skills at university level. To gain maximum impact, I use novel teaching methods in my classes, as shown in the following video, produced by the Departement for Teaching Skills at University Level at the University of Bern (in German only). Further, I also won a teaching award by the University of Bern for my seminar Genetics in Social Science (Spring term 2019) due to the excellent student evaluation.
