«Dr. Klein-Franke’s interdisciplinary interests and knowledge makes her able to see relationships as well as points of conflict in cross-disciplinary work. She has always been able to both respect the perspective of others and to suggest additional approaches to be considered. She has a sharp analytical mind and excels at quickly understanding many fields of study. Her intercultural abilities and knowledge and interpersonal skills enable her to put people from very diverse backgrounds, ages and cultures at ease, and to encourage them to expand and clarify to lessen the possibilities of misunderstandings.»
