bachelor and master students

Students theses topics range from plant anatomy to wood science, with applications to areas like ecology or wood quality. My goal is to give students a chance to gain and practice skills in logic, creativity, analysis, synthesis, and communication. Part of the game is also to take some risks, and to carry through with students own ideas.

Dryas meetings

Our group meetings are named after Dryas octopetala L., a prostrate, long-lived branched dwarf shrub with stems up to 50 cm.

I keep a lively group with a critical mass to give students an opportunity to share their own research as well as learn more about what their colleagues are doing. Moreover our meetings are a venue for practicing presentation skills and providing and receiving constructive feedbacks in a supportive environment. Last but not least the meetings are a forum for communication about current progress, upcoming events and collaborative efforts.
