A short presentation of yourself: 
Currently, I am almost finishing my PhD doctoral studies in Ruse University on the topic of ‘Acquiring Intercultural Competence in Multicultural Teams, Working on Transborder projects”. My research focuses on surveying Bulgarian-Romanian cross-border teams under CBC Romania – Bulgaria 2007-2014. In addition to that, I am also teaching Intercultural Communication in Ruse University. As part of the Erasmus+mobility I lectured on the same topic in Danubius University, Galatsi, Romania in 2016. From February until May 2017 I had the chance to teach and do research work on the same topics at Hubei University of Technology, Wuhan, China. Together with my academic career in the formal education, I have been involved in non-formal education as the Chairperson of the NGO ‘Paralel – Silistra’. As a member of the civil society from the Danube cross-border region, I have been managing or coordinating projects under the CBC Romania – Bulgaria 2007-2014 as well as under the current INTERREG VA.
