Outlook:

Methods do not solve problems. Methods offer different kinds of explanation. Humans solve problems.

 

Approach:

The essential difficulty with complexity is not in its resolution, for complexity is not irresolvable. Complexity is irresolvable only when accompanied by disorder. Hence, the road toward resolving complexity does not lie with approaches focused upon problem solving. The road lies with approaches that can, first and foremost, transform the disorder into some order. This implies the imposition of structure. Ergo: the need for problem structuring methods.

 

Focus:

Creative human-centered approaches that methodologically address complex problems through interdisciplinary scientific research, in order to facilitate systemically desirable and culturally feasible change.

Proficient in five languages.
