If you are interested in working with me as a collaborator, visiting researcher, intern, or graduate student, then please contact me by email - I would like to hear from you!

If you have never contacted me before, it is essential that you say in your initial email what specific aspect of my research you are interested in.

If you do not have any interest in my research, but would simply like to spend time in Cambridge, or in the Computer Lab, then you should explore the University and Department schemes for research fellowships, job vacancies, and internships.

Helpful advice for those early in their research career

If you are reading this page for the first time after already having sent me an email message, it is possible that your previous email may have seemed insulting and/or ignorant (because of your lack of interest in my work, your failure to have done any prior investigation, your willingness to send spam or form-generated messages, or your treating me as an anonymous/interchangeable component of my institution). If you think this may have happened to you, then please feel free to offer an explanation - in the future, I hope to expand this page with the best (and worst) examples in order to assist future enquirers. If you are not guilty of any of those things, but have read this far anyway, I would welcome feedback on how this advice page could be improved.
