Hello Dr. I must say that you are indeed a great teacher. Your lessons are quite simple and concise. I was excited the first day I came across your channel and its rich content. If I had the opportunity of these lessons during my undergraduate days, no doubt I would have become a research expert by now. However, I'm going to get there soon.
