How leaving your mono-disciplinary comfort zone bears fruit
“I think it’s important that we are on the same page when it comes to understanding resilience and it’s a major inspiration for my scientific work. To me, a resilient system is a system that can handle stress, and has the ability to evolve. This system has robustness against some level of stress and is able to adapt after disruptive events took place.”
