- Preparing supervision
- If you find that I could be an appropriate supervisor for your scientific project, and if your question passes the above mentioned tests, please complete this form on your computer and send the form to me. The form should help you to structure your thoughts, to find out whether your project has a good chance to succeed and to decide whether I am a good match to supervise your project. This part will also help you preparing the motivation of your project.
