Publications

An overview of my publications can be found at the following places. Note that they have varying degrees of completeness.

Below is a list of publications that I try to keep up to date, along with the BibTex source from which it was generated. For some publications a link to a locally hosted PDF is included; this is either the final version as published, in case of an open access publication, or it is the author preprint as allowed by the publisher.

Should you be interested in a paper of which no PDF is directly available, please contact me.
