– I believe that good supervision is a two-way street where both the supervisor and the student contribute equally to the process. My role is not just to guide but also to listen, learn, and evolve alongside my students, said Ramesh.

Kind, understanding, helpful and encourages critical thinking

In the motivation it ways that Ramesh is kind, understanding, helpful, encourages critical thinking and independent planning, allows room for errors and to grow from those mistakes, motivates students to develop other soft skills besides lab work/research that will help further your career after PhD.

He is a very remarkable mentor and collaborator that dedicate his time and experience to guide and support his working group and beyond students in a welcoming manner.

Powerful inspiration
