## A statement of principleI do not accept funding from organizations active in national security, military, surveillance and similar areas, nor will I collaborate with individuals associated with those. This exclusion reflects a deeply-held belief that the militarization of science and research is detrimental to human progress towards peace and equitable distribution of resources. As a researcher, I consider it my responsibility that my work not cause harm to other people, either directly or indirectly, and as an educator, I strive to demonstrate this commitment in my professional activities. ## Selected publications: submitted/acceptedBreidt, F.J. and J.D.
