How is it to be an assistant professor at the complex systems group?

I think it's very good to work in the CS group, nice and interesting colleagues and students.

Being a teaching assistant, what do you want us students to think for our report writing etc?

Think about what the report is intended to communicate and try to make it focused and coherent. Reports should read well, that is when reading it from the beginning to the end it should tell a story. 

And what advice would you give to a student wondering what master thesis to do?

I personally value a good relationship with my supervisor higher than any specific characteristics of projects, but your mileage may vary. 

And anything else- you might want to add ?

You can always ask anyone of us teachers for suggestions on projects. We have a reasonably good feeling for what the others are doing so even if we don't have anything that suits you ourselves, we can point you in the direction of someone else. We usually have a number of potential masters projects that we have thought about.
