Bath and Princeton
Given we all have spam filters these days, surely hiding email
addresses is passé.
My Bath email is firstname.lastname@example.org,
and my Princeton email is email@example.com.
Given both go to exchange servers without IMAP support, they both
just get forwarded to gmail. If you don't trust gmail, you
can write me surface mail. If you want to make an email
unambiguously to me (rather than have it possibly wind up owned or
identified as "junk" by one of my institutions) please use firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are an undergraduate or otherwise unused to emailing
academics, you might want to read these
helpful tips about how to email a professor first. Please
note that I'm trying to get more work done in mornings, so to only
check email once a day in late afternoons.
From August 2015 I am on sabbatical at Princeton's Center for Information
Technology Policy. You can mail me at the CITP surface mail
address (hidden on their "directions" page).
I still get paid by and supervise PhD students at Bath, so I drop by
there irregularly, once every month or four. You can surface
mail me at my department's
postal address. Anything more direct or detailed (like
mentioning my office number) is unlikely to alter the outcome.
A semi-surface alternate that also winds up in the department
office is fax: +44
(0)1225 383493 for Bath, um, I don't think Princeton still has
faxes. Let me know by some other means if you want me to hunt
harder for a fax machine at Princeton.
My Bath office phone is +44 (if you are abroad) or 0 (if you are
not) 1225 38 39 34. Note that I don't check messages on that,
don't leave a message. My Princeton work number is +1 (609)
285 3596, and messages get emailed to me, with really
amusingly bad transcriptions, so by all means leave a message
there! However, I really prefer to be emailed. The only
thing better than email is a face-to-face meeting...
Finding me in space
From August 2015 I am predominantly in my office at Princeton, which
is room 316 of 303 Sherrerd Hall.
However, more frequently than you might think I am back in Bath in
my office*, 1W 3.60
This means I have offices with doors you can knock on.
Bath instructions: If
you have an appointment, please do knock on my door
at the appointed time. I often do appointments in clusters, and
often get engrossed in talking to people. Also, many people
forget their appointments. So I won't come looking for you or
notice you're there if you don't knock! However, please do make an appointment
so you don't waste your time looking for me when I'm not
there. Please don't interrupt me without an appointment
though, unless it feels like it might be urgent. But the point
of office hours is not only to be sure you don't waste your time
coming by when I'm not there, but also to let me concentrate during
Princeton instructions: if my door is open, feel
free to walk in and talk to me. If it is closed, you might
want to make an appointment, or just try your luck.

Finding me in real time
I am nearly always logged in to google mail / hangouts, as
joanna.j. I prefer chatting there over using skype. If
my dot is red, don't interrupt me though. But if it's green,
you can give it a go. I also respond pretty well if you
Scheduling an appointment
During term (and sometimes out of term) I schedule regular
appointments you can book
an appointment slot. If you need to see me before my
next available slot, please email me (or try my door). If it's very
