Dr. William Kallfelz 

Personal Profile

After serving academia for more than two decades, in 2022 I left my university position to join my wife in her/our journey. Now, starting Kallfelz Academy, I am delighted to provide my expertise to assist with educational, scientific, and applied projects that serve students, educators, scientists, and tech innovators. I encourage you to get in touch with us to discuss how we can support you in achieving your project objectives. Let's collaborate to make a meaningful impact in our respective areas of focus.
