Publications & presentations

I try to self-archive all my articles here and at ResearchGate, as far as publication policies allow. Additionally, you can find information about citation metrics of my publications if you look at my ResearcherID: H-5401-2013 or at my Google Scholar site. I also do have an ORCID: 0000-0003-3529-5681.
