    My scientific philosophy:
    To describe my scientific philosophy, I am borrowing a quote from popular culture:
    “there is a crack - a crack in everything - that’s how the light comes in”
    (from the song “Anthem” by Leonard Cohen)
    In every scientific dogma and prevailing view, there are cracks and gaps. If we can identify these cracks and find ways to observe the light coming through, we have the possibility to gain fundamental new knowledge.
