Publications

For most of the papers I have a PDF available for download, plus a DOI link. See the PDF and DOI links behind the papers. The PDFs of the journal articles I host on this website are generated by myself and posted with approval of the publisher (Elsevier). If an open-access version of the article is available, I provide a link to that PDF. A list of my publications can also be found on my Google Scholar Citations profile, including how often the papers are cited.
