If you study in the B.Sc. or M.Sc. Environmental Sciences at the Open University and you are interested to do your thesis with me, please send me an e-mail!

One year ago I started to supervise Ph.D. students as second supervisor. If you are interested to work with me, please contact me with a CV and a first draft of your research proposal.
