If you are a student at any level interested in discussing the possibility of writing a bachelor's, master's, or PhD thesis under my supervision, please contact me to make an appointment.

Details, range, and scope of any thesis are established in person depending on the training and interests of the candidate. To give a flavor of possible topics, some examples are listed below. EDDy topics are described in more detail on the EDDy website.
