In my role as a lecturer at the University of Bolzano, Italy, I have taught the course “Solar Energy Systems”  since 2013. I have always had full responsibility for developing the curriculum, content, course materials, assessment tasks and for conducting the assessments. I continue to update the curriculum to reflect changes and developments in the fast-moving field of solar energy research, business and industry. I have always taken time to understand students’ needs to ensure that future graduates are well equipped with the most up to date skills and knowledge in the field. I always strive to deliver lectures with high energy to motivate student and share my passion for sustainable energy solutions.
