ADVISING


If you want to develop a BSc, MSc or PhD project, please contact me. For BSc and MSc projects, we can discuss some ideas that I have, but if you have your own, even better. For PhD projects, well, I expect you to come with an idea, even if still raw, before we start discussing.

Just note that whatever is the level, I expect you to lead your project. I will be there to help certainly as much as possible, but you shall be the leader, otherwise how could you feel that it is "your project"?

Also, please take this paper into consideration: link.

You can check bellow some people and projects that I had, or I am having, the pleasure to advise.
