I want to have a meeting with you soon. When are you free?

I am free intermittently, and my schedule is sometimes quite complicated. You can sign up for a time here. If you need something further in the future -- or if none of the close-by times work for you -- you should email me.

Sign up here to meet with me.

I think your research is really exciting. Are you available to visit me and give a colloquium or workshop?

Thanks! I think it's really exciting too. Yes, broadly speaking, I would love to visit you and give a colloquium or workshop. You should check out some of the possibilities for both. Generally I am more free during the academic year than during the summer; academic year trips are usually under one week, but summer trips can be longer. During the academic year, I usually need a couple of months lead time to find dates. During the summer, most of my time is spoken for by the beginning of March. It's always possible that a trip on shorter notice can work out. Email me and we can work out dates!

I am a prospective international collaborator or student and I want to work with you on a research project or visit the KSUPER group. Can I join your group?

Yes! I am currently seeking new students, and I am always delighted to host collaborators for short or long stays.

Mechanically, new graduate students will need to apply to (and be accepted into) the graduate program at KSU. New undergraduate students (if they are not already KSU students) should apply to the KSU Physics REU program. If you're already a KSU undergrad and you're looking to do undergraduate research with me, great!

If you're a student somewhere else, faculty on sabbatical, or independent researcher, we would be delighted to host you for a research exchange trip. Most visitors for this purpose visit for a semester or academic year, though longer or shorter trips are possible. Alas, we cannot normally fund your stay, though it is often possible for me to provide a letter of invitation in support of your visit.

For all prospective lab members: I'm happy to chat about research ideas as you plan your application. You can email me about ideas, or we can meet to chat. Either is ok with me. There's a quick google form to help you organize your thoughts here.

I love your art! Can I commission a poster?

Thank you! I am happy to make prints of existing posters for your personal use, from poster-sized to postcard-sized. I love the fine prints people at Adorama. Email me for specifics on paper/medium, image, and size.

If you want me to design a new poster for your conference or event, I'm happy to make it as long as your meeting and/or organization supports my values and I have the time to design it. Fees range from credit to credit + beverage. If I design a poster for you, I'll send you vector graphics files for you to print. Email me for specifics.

If you have an idea for a specific addition to one of my existing poster series, I'd love to hear it! Email me. If I like your idea, I'll put it in the queue and send you a copy when I'm done. If you want your idea to skip the queue, my rush professional rate is $1000/day, full day increments.

I love your photographs! Can I have a print or use it in my own work?

Thanks! I'm happy to make prints for you or release digital copies for your own personal use. It's not ok for you to make money from my photos, either by selling prints or selling digital images. You should email me to talk about which images, what size, and what kind of paper and/or matting you'd like.

I love your knitting patterns! Will you knit me something?

Thanks, but no. Knit your own things.
