I am out of the office extensively at different during the year due to professional travel.  E-mail is the most effective communication method. I try my best to return email as soon as possible.  However, due to the amount of email that I receive it may be 5-7 days at busy times. Please kindly remember that e-mail is not instant messaging.

Advising Hours

Due to travel, grant and research schedules I plan my basic office hours during the advising week of each semester.   We can set up a single or reoccurring advising appointment for the semester.  

All of my appointments must be scheduled. No drop-in appointments are accepted.
