This is not really my inbox, but it communicates the state of my email inbox quite well.

The Best Way to Contact Me

The best way to contact me is via short emails. Due to the volume of email I receive every day, I may be unable to reply quickly, especially if you send me a long email.

I check my emails frequently, but I reply only when I have time to spare, which is unfortunately rare. Therefore, short emails that expect a short response get replied more quickly. Longer emails, especially ones that require me to perform some action or write a long response, can stay in my inbox indefinitely and unintentionally get burried under other emails. I apologize in advance if I am unable to get back to you in a timely manner. Even though I try to reply to all emails that expect a response, it may take me a long time to do so.

If you don't hear back from me regarding a critical issue, please email me again.

Working with Students

I'm always interested in working with technically strong students. If you are interested in working with me, please read the following.

If you are already a University of Utah student, please feel free to communicate your interest in working with me anytime (the earlier the better). The best way to start would be taking one of my courses. I typically don't accept students who haven't performed exceptionally well in one of my classes. Doing an independent study with me is another good option.

If you are considering applying for the Univeristy of Utah, I would highly encourage that you do so. If you include my name in your application, I will get to see your file, though I am not always involved in the admission decisions. I would recommend including images and/or links to youtube videos about your prior graphics-related work. If you have published papers, you can include (some of) them as well. Note that the application interface does not include options for adding images or additional documents, but you can always attach such documents to other files you are uploading and/or put links in your CV. In the past years there was no application fee for domestic students and a very small fee for international students. Please check with the School of Computing to see if this is still the case.
