For Students

I am here to support you in your academic and professional trajectory.

Contact me to discuss specific course concerns, your overall curriculum, career goals, job applications, etc. 


Office Hours

I hold office hours in ARCH Building #1217 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in the Fall semester and Mondays and Tuesdays in the Spring semester. Please email me to make an appointment and include "Office Hours" (or something similar) in the subject line. 


Letters of Recommendations and References

If you would like a reference or letter of recommendation, please email me with an inquiry and include "Request for Reference" (or something similar) in the subject line. In your request, please include the following information: 

  • the job description
  • your application materials (cover letter, resume, etc.) 
  • (for a letter) a draft letter of recommendation
  • (for a reference) a few bullets on what you think I can offer to the future employer
  • logistical details (e.g., deadline for submission, address or email for delivery, etc.)

After I review these things, I can tell you whether or not I can serve as a reference and in what capacity. I will consider not only your materials but also the nature of our work together (in class, on a research project, in advising, etc.) and provide an honest assessment about what I can and cannot speak to you in your application. This will give you an opportunity to make thoughtful choices about whom you list as a reference and ensure that you have the strongest application possible. 

Please note, for letters of recommendation, I require at least two (2) weeks advance notice.
