It is not meant to be a humble brag or false modesty because I do not like to pretend to be either a good researcher or a bad researcher. To emphasize, I am really lazy in my daily life, especially when it comes to any kind of work that does not fit with my idealism of being simple and non-bureaucratic. As a result, I frequently procrastinate and do not meet the deadline. Sorry for that! Nevertheless, I will give my best if it is to serve the public (after all, I am a civil servant, not fully a researcher).
To my students, I honestly would advise you not to be lazy because I understand in general it is not good for your future career, whether you will go into academia or industry. To potential collaborators, I kindly ask you to be patient with me. Depending on the research topics we are exploring together, we might be able to contribute to society as well as getting lost in the jungle. Although some research projects from my former lab were quite well-cited in the literature, most of the papers in my publication list ended up unrecognized.
