On these sites you may find all kinds of information revolving around a professor's three main fields of occupation: my research, publications and teaching. Right now the site may still be restricted to very basic functionalities but as time goes by I hope to create a lively virtual space of exchange and interpersonal communication off institutional tracks. If you happen to run into any technical problems contact the administrator of this page, Feel free to leave a message in the guestbook!
