Office Hours

My fall 2023 office hours will be held Wednesdays 3-5, and by appointment.  Please sign up for a block of time here.   The sign-up sheet will be updated every Wednesday after 5pm, with new times available for the following Wednesday.  I plan to be in my office (4215 Dwinelle) for office hours, but if you prefer to meet via Zoom there will be a link on the sign-up sheet.

Because a major construction project will soon be underway just outside my office window, I may need to switch to Zoom office hours at some point this semester.  This will be reflected on the sign-up sheet.

If you would like to meet but are unable to attend office hours at the scheduled time, or if you can't access the sign-up sheet, please get in touch with me via email.
