Topics for Bachelor's or Master's Theses

We invite students from various disciplines to collaborate with us on one of the following topics as their Bachelor's or Master's Thesis or during a not-too-short internship:

Note: Although we are principally open to students from all academic fields related to our interdisciplinary research copan color logo smallarea, students from a field that routinely applies mathematical modelling and analysis and computer simulations will find it much easier to meet the requirements for successful work on these topics.
