I am currently supervising 2 PhD students at the Instituto Superior Técnico / University of Lisbon (Matteo Piani and Joan Bachs Esteban).


I supervised 6 MSc Thesis, 2 at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (G. Karananas 2012, Jöel Repond 2015) and 4 at the University of Heidelberg (M. Pauly 2018, A. Menaya 2018, S. Savastano 2019, Julius Wons 2019). The supervision of these students turned out to be very fruitful and finished in most cases with publications in Q1 peer-review journals.
