Federrath - Research Projects
Below is a list of potential research project ideas. Most of them are adjustable to all levels (Undergrad/Honours/Masters/PhD/Postdoc), and most of them are collaborative projects within the group and/or involving national and/or international collaboration partners. If you are interested in joining our group please contact email@example.com.
