Notes on supervision of scientific works:

Students who wish to write a thesis under my supervision should ideally contact me two months in advance of the registration in the examinations office. We need to discuss a project outline in form of an introduction or exposé in advance of your registration (this includes the research question, a contextual classification and restriction of the topic, the methodical approach and a statement about the structure of your work).
