"I think about IRI THESys as an oasis for interdisciplinary approach. It achieves to gather a unique richness of backgrounds and ideas, truly needed to test our molds and tackle the highly complex phenomena of human-nature relations and its problems. I am deeply grateful to be a part of it and I am sure that my research found the ideal place to be contested and grow therefore." Jorge Vega Marrot
