I started my PhD study at Goethe University Frankfurt in 2011, which was one of the greatest decisions that I have ever made. Goethe University Frankfurt is a place where integrates modern concepts and international perspectives into the traditional educational system, and I have benefited a lot from its diversity and openness. During my study, I also worked as a Research Assistant at the International Center for Insurance Regulation (ICIR). The ICIR is an independent academic organization that provides high-quality research work, (executive) education, and platforms for stimulating dialogues between regulators, industrial specialists and researchers. As a team member, I had the great opportunity to access the top-level think tank, to collaborate interesting research projects, and to exchange my work and thinking with the rest of the world. Prof. Dr. Helmut Gründl, Managing Director of the ICIR, has been one of the brightest and most benevolent people that I have ever met. Working for him enables me to obtain broad knowledge in the area of insurance regulation, to seek understandings about myself, and to learn how to make right decisions in the future. I have gained a lot more than I could ever think of before I started, which makes the last four years a precious journey in my life. I am very grateful to Prof. Gründl and his team and looking forward to the development of the ICIR and the upcoming challenges in my life.
