Interaction is an important part of my research. Consequently, I have
written few single author papers. Below I list the young people -- students
and postdocs -- I have
worked in the past.
Students. There were a number of students who were supervised by
a colleague with whom I interacted with during their PhD period. For those
who were co-supervised I mark by "*". For those whom I provided data or
interacted on specific projects I mark by "#".
Some postdocs were Prize fellows for whom I was either the nominal supervisor
or took active interest. I have marked such entries also with "#".
If you know the homepages of anyone below please let me know. On the
other hand, please also let me know if you think that I have overlooked
you or that you object to being on this list.
