Supervision of graduate students and hosting of postdocs

My first M.Sc. student graduated in 1995. Since then I have supervised over 30 additional M.Sc. students, many of whom went on to American, Canadian and European universities to pursue their Ph.D. degrees. I have also supervised 16 Ph.D. students, the first of whom obtained his degree in 2000, and have hosted eight postdoctoral researchers, primarily funded by the DFG and the Humboldt Foundation. Many of my students and postdocs have come from abroad (Argentina, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Italy, Japan, Poland, Taiwan, Thailand, The Netherlands, United Kingdom, USA).
