- The colored time periods blocked out on the following schedule are committed times. Obviously, during office hours you are encouraged to drop by, but you may also drop by during the uncommitted time periods. It is best to make an appointment via email to ensure I will be in my office and to help me plan.

Making Good Choices:
- Choosing an advisor is a big deal. Gustav Dirichlet had two advisors: Simeon Poisson and Jean-Baptiste Fourier. Good choices.
- Taking on a student is a big deal. Johann Bode had only one student: Johann Pfaff. As a result, Bode has 86,290 mathematical descendants (or 41.9% of the mathematicians recorded in the mathematics genealogy project) as of December 20, 2016. Good choice.
