Student affairs

Office hours

In the summer term 2022 my office hour takes place on Thursdays from 2 to 3 pm. Alternatively, please feel free to send me an e-mail and propose two other appointments. In doing so, please, specify your issue.    


If you intend to send me an e-mail, please, describe your issue as detailed as possible and provide all information needed, i.e. your name, your enrollment number, name of the course, date of your examination, etc.

Term papers

If you intend to write a term paper under my supervision, you are obliged to come to my office hour and to discuss with me both the topic and a preliminary structure of your term paper.

Usually, I read, mark and score term papers within two weeks after submission. I inform you about the grade by sending you an e-mail. In doing so, I also justify the grade briefly and invite you to my office hour to give you detailed feedback.

Authors of excellent term papers are invited to prepare with me a joint journal publication. Such a collaboration takes at least six months.

Student academic theses

Due to my ongoing habilitation project, I do not supervise any student academic theses at the University of Cologne. However, if you are interested in a topic that covers my research interests, please, get in touch with me, either by e-mailing me or by coming to my office hour.
