My office hours during the winter term are Mondays, 4:30-6:00, and Tuesdays, 12:30-1:30, or by appointment, in my office in BA 4234. We may move to a larger room sometimes, in which case I will leave a note on my door.

I won't be holding my office hours during reading week (week of February 20th), and my regular office hours end with the end of classes on April 13. After that, please send e-mail to make an appointment.

The best way to contact me is by e-mail. I usually read my e-mail quite frequently.
