Publications

These publications are in technical scientific journals and went through (or are going through) the scientific peer-review process, which means the work was reviewed by 2-4 experts in the field, and journal editors who are subject experts as well, prior to final publication. That process can take 4 months to over a year.
Bold means the researcher is in MESAS research group. You can also learn more about my research interests by visiting my ResearchGate profile, ORCID profile, and/or ResearcherID profile.
