I take a minimalist approach to email and work hard to protect my time so I am able to maximize productivity and contact with students.

Students: Current and former students are welcome to stop by my office, Guthrie 133, during my posted office hours (listed outside my door each quarter).

Requests for interviews and speaking engagements:  Send a message to with the subject line “Interview request” or “Speaking request.” I will only respond to requests that are a good match for my schedule and interests.

Interesting ideas: If you have an offer, opportunity, or introduction that might make my life more interesting, or some relevant links or reading to share, send me a message at with the subject line “Interesting.” While I appreciate your thoughtfulness, please understand that I am unable to respond to most emails.
