The crudest curriculum vitae crows and flaps its wings in a style peculiar to the undersigner. I doubt whether you can even give your telephone number without giving something of yourself.

Professor (having previously assisted and associated), Department of Computer Science and Department of Information Science.
A.B. Cornell 1993, math and computer science; Ph.D. Harvard 1997, computer science.
I will not be able to take on or co-advise PhD students admitted in 2018 (i.e., applying this fall). This is NOT because I am leaving! (Industry hired away all the best "Lees"/"Lis" already anyway...); rather, I need time to honor my commitments to my current PhD students and to my research-community and university obligations.
For the same reasons, in AY 2017-2018 I will also not be able to have research collaborations with Cornell undergraduates or supervise research internships with students from outside Cornell.
I realize that these decisions mean that I am missing out on the opportunity to work with some fantastic people.

Go to my office-hours youcanbook.me page and read the instructions there carefully. (Yes, while classes are held, I do have regular office hours! But I'm using this appointment system rather than drop-in so that everyone gets individual time. I generally have at least two hours every "regular" week, so if you see little or no available time, that probably means other people booked the timeslots first. Have no fear, the instructions tell you what to do if there aren't available times.)
