Communication Policy

Because of my unpredictable schedule, I do not keep regular office hours. However, I strongly encourage students to find times to meet with me in person by appointment (or by phone if you are studying remotely). To make an appointment, or to ask brief clarifying questions, please email me at

You may refer to me as you wish, but I recommend that undergraduates refer to me as “Professor Schneider” (not “Dr. Schneider,” as I do not hold a PhD) and graduate students refer to me simply as “Nathan.”
