Reaching me by email:
Email is the best way to reach me; unfortunately, I am not terribly efficient in reading all the email I receive.
Sometimes you do not need to reach me directly:

  • for matters related to the NSF Engineering Research Center mail to
  • for scheduling appointments and time-sensitive issues mail to
  • prospective graduate students please read our 'contact' page
  • for direct communication use Please summarize the main points of your message in the first paragraph. If I am in a hurry I only pay attention to the first few lines of each message, so it is best to send separate messages with appropriate titles if you wish to communicate on independent topics.
