Thesis Topics

Last modified March 18, 2020, at 03:44 PM by FOE.

If you are an student and you are interested in doing a thesis with me, these are a few suggestions, but feel free to approach me if you have an idea you want to discuss. Some additional information can be found about the different topics in my presentation ( ) for the Methodology Seminar?. Also, check my research interests. Any of the suggested topics may be considered for a MSc or PhD thesis. There might be some students already working on these topics, but more candidates are seek. I might consider to take exceptional BSc students; often this must be done in co-supervision with some lecturer or professor of the original university.
