Maria is adept at research and interpretation. This has led to her writing family guides, film scripts, delivering training, and giving inspirational lectures. The stories of past events are illuminated and made accessible under her captivating lens.

"Not only do you ALWAYS manage to pull everything together so beautifully but you also get such good work from the students. I was dearly hoping that this year's stories would be of as good a quality as last year's and therefore suitable for a PhD thesis."
