How to Really Find Me

Best way to find me is by the e-mail above. Please use a relevant subject line if you want me to answer quickly. If you're a member of Tsukuba University, I'm generally available on Teams as well. Just search my name there.

Review Policy

In general I see peer review as volunteer/charity work, and threat it likewise.

So I will generally review papers for venues that I feel a degree of social obligation to. Namely, conferences and communities where I am an active part of, or editors that I know personally.

In other cases, I'm very unlikely to review, unless the abstract is really interesting, or the publisher is a small academic community that I feel needs some help to grow.

That said, I do enjoy reviewing papers, and would be happy to do more of it if I were properly paid for my time.
