Finally I managed to create this research website, a project that had been in the pipeline for a long time. Inspired by Michele Coscia, whose fascinating posts I highly recommend following, I am simultaneously starting this blog. Time will tell whether it will actually evolve into a fully-fledged research blog with regular original posts, or whether it will merely consist of short notes about new publications, collaborations, and the like. Please have a look around! Any comments and suggestions are very much appreciated.
