If you are an ETH student interested in doing a

  • BSc thesis
  • MSc thesis
  • Semester project
  • Reading course

then feel free to contact me.

For MSc theses, you must have a strong background in differential geometry. I am fully booked until Spring 2020 for BSc theses and Summer 2020 for MSc theses though!
