Office Hours Fall 2017:

TTh 9:45-10:45AM (usually in "Free Speech Cafe")

TTh 1-2PM (usually in Evans 713)


With enrollment questions:

Contact Thomas Brown or Ana Renteria at the Math Department: during their office hours, in person (NOT on email!) if you want your question to be answered quickly.

Write to enrollment@math.berkeley.edu but be aware that lots of people will be writing to this email address, so you are better off going directly in person to Thomas Brown, Ana Renteria, or Jennifer Pinney.

Do NOT contact the instructor, as I have no impact on enrollment in the classes. Writing to me with enrollment questions will indicate that you have not read my personal website, which is the first thing you need to do before deciding whether to contact or not an instructor with a particular question. My email is only for emergencies. My email is NOT for routine or non-emergency questions.

Instructions for Requesting a Recommendation Letter

Read carefully and follow strictly these Instructions.

There is a one-month period AFTER:

1. I have received all information from you and from your GSI(s);

2. And all on-line links for letter submission have been sent to me by the programs;

3. And BEFORE I submit the letter.

Thus, start the process at least 6 weeks before my deadline for the letter.
