These days, due to COVID, my communication with researchers is usually via email, phone, Zoom and other platforms. Remember when we used to run into people on campus?
I'd be happy to hear from you by email, especially if you have a question about research for a CMNS course or one that can be addressed by finding an appropriate information source.
If we need to have a more in-depth conversation, we can schedule that at our mutual convenience.
