Topics for supervision

Bachelor theses

I am happy to consider supervising English theses on financial markets, institutional structures, financial development, and economic growth. Please feel free to contact me. Prospective students are also encouraged to suggest their own topics – a final topic will be selected based on consultation.

Master theses

As a PhD candidate, I am primarily supervising Bachelor theses. You are encouraged to select your Master thesis supervisor from the current IES faculty. If you still want me to supervise your Master thesis, get in touch with me via email. I supervise only theses written in English.
