Try Email First

Many of the inquiries I get can usually be handled by email—in fact, sometimes email is a much better way to handle them. Therefore, I recommend you contact me by email first, unless you believe email is going to be inappropriate or ineffective for what you want to discuss.

Office Hours

During Fall 2023, my focus is on the students in my Brown classes. Therefore, if you are a Brown student, you can sign up for my office hours. I've intentionally picked hours that cross class slot boundaries and that include lunchtime, to maximize the chances of your finding a slot. Note that the Zoom link in the calendar requires a Brown login, so if you are not a Brown student, please don't bother taking one of these slots: you won't be able to use it anyway.

For temporary medical reasons, I am often in the CIT but not necessarily every Monday. It's safe to assume we will meet by Zoom. However, if you'd prefer to meet in person, ping me on Monday after 10am, and I'll tell you whether I'm will be in for office hours that day or not. (Even if I'm in, we can still use Zoom.)

If That Won't Work

If you can't make my office hours, please send me mail to schedule a slot. But first:

  1. Check my travel dates below to confirm I'm in town.
  2. Then check my calendar below to confirm I'm free.

Please try to avoid asking for times in the evenings or weekends, unless absolutely necessary. Professors have families and other obligations.

My Calendar

Note: due to the vagaries of Google Calendar, please:
