INVOLVED PROJECTS

 

The following list of projects details the projects I have been actively involved in in the past, or in which I am currently active.The involvement in the following research projects includes the writing of the project proposals and project reports, the project management in terms of handling the communication with other research partners, and the actual execution of the research projects (set-up of the study, analyses, scientific reporting, etc.).
