I am on sabbatical in 2017-18. I am no longer your advisor. Please see the FAQ before contacting your advisor. Many of the answers are already there.

Orientation notes for the Fall 2016 semester.

Important notes:
  • I cannot help with issues related to admissions, finances or student visas. Please contact the appropriate office for these matters.
  • I do not waive prerequisites for courses without the consent of the instructor. (This is because I do not claim to know which specific background material is required for each class.) If you think that you have covered all the prerequisites for a class, please email the instructor or bring a completed change of enrollment form to class for him or her to sign. These forms are available here along with other useful forms and the schedule of classes.
  • I strongly prefer that you contact me by email instead of telephone for record-keeping and other purposes.

By Jacob August Riis: "I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before."
