Important notifications for the students

(NEW) Consultation hours during the teaching period: every FRIDAY, from 13:30 to 16:00.

Appointments outside the programmed slot can be allowed only for relevant reasons.

Given the very high request of Master Theses supervision, I cannot accept anymore all the students I would like to. Those of you wishing to be supervised have therefore to prepare a structured project already including a research idea with questions, references, and potential methodology/data to be used – please consider that only the most promising will be accepted. In any case, read the news below –
