Former Students:

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.
