I get so much email that I simply cannot respond to all of it. So here is a brief guide on whether to email me and how.

Are you interested in my work at Rasa?
Email a.lopez@rasa.com. Please do not send university-related emails to this address.
Are you a friend or a current or former research student?
I would love to hear from you! Please email my personal address if you have it, otherwise one of the other addresses on this page.
Are you seeking a studentship or other academic position with me?
I am no longer taking students or hiring for academic positions, so please don’t email me. I wish you the best of luck, but there’s nothing I can do to help you, so I will not respond to your email.
Are you seeking information about courses or programs at the university?
I no longer teach nor direct academic programes, so please don’t email me. I wish you best of luck, but there’s nothing I can do to help you, so I will not respond to your email.
Are you interested in other university business?
My work at the university is limited to advising my current PhD students. If your interest relates to that, or to another university matter on which I am obliged or already commited, email alopez@inf.ed.ac.uk. I am unlikely to respond to emails about other university business. Please be patient, and do not send university-related emails to other addresses.
Are you interested in something not covered by the categories above?
It is unlikely that I will respond to emails on other topics. My time is finite, and every email I respond to chips away at time that I have for the people and projects that matter to me.
