There are many ways to reach me:
Office hours— I'm on sabbatical until September 2023 and not holding office
— I primarily use email to communicate with people I don't know and occasionally
with collaborators who refuse to use anything else. If you're a student, a potential
collaborator, or anyone else, write me an email to connect. I read email once
in the morning each weekday. I don't read on weekends unless I'm super engaged
on a project.
Slack— Slack is my preferred medium for collaboration with my Ph.D.
students and other collaborators at UW and beyond. During the work day I
treat Slack like instant messaging, and after hours I treat it like
email, reading it in the morning. If you're at UW, join one of the
Slacks and DM me. I'm usually pretty responsive throughout the day.
— I used to be fairly active on Twitter, but mostly left in June 2022.
I still broadcast writing, amplify others, and respond to DMs, but I'm generally
not posting otherwise. You might find me on Mastadon @firstname.lastname@example.org saying
— I host a lot of my content and software projects on GitHub. Feel free
to submit issues and pull requests to my various repositories.
— I use LinkedIn as my primary contact manager. I usually only accept connections
from people I've met IRL and have a professional relationship with (students,
collaborators, professional colleagues). I read my LinkedIn messages as part
of my morning email routine.
— I primarily use Facebook for non-work relationships (though that boundary
is blurry). I usually only accept connections from people I've met IRL and have
a social relationship with, so if I have a purely professional relationship with
you, please don't be offended if I decline your friend request. Add me on LinkedIn
Phone— Don't call me on the phone. It's never the right time, I'm rarely in
my office when you want to reach me. Write me on one of the platforms above first
and we can schedule a call if necessary.
