These are PhD students whom I am (or was), officially (with a few exceptions) the main advisor. Indirectly, I've advised others as well, on request, when their research was related to mine or just plain exciting in some way or another.
If you want to do a PhD with me, look at their topics, as well as at topics on my main page (especially research projects), for inspiration. Some ideas (for MSc, so PhD should be grander) can be found here .
