Thank you for visiting my website and for your interest in my research. I am always looking for talented, highly motivated and independent graduate students. A solid mathematical background is strongly recommended. If you believe you have a unique set of skills and you are interested in joining my group, please send me an e-mail.

(a) Highlighting a respectable publication of yours in terms of its relevance and intellectual merit,
(b) commenting on a publication of mine that you find interesting and providing suggestions for improvement,
(c) or using as a reference a colleague of mine that I may know personally or from their work,

will definitely catch my attention. It is also important that you keep your e-mails short, concise, in text format and with external links or attachments for more information.
