Email Policy

My email address is prantar.bhowmik@mail.utoronto.ca. I will be checking my email every night. But before you email me, consider attending a practical or post the question on Piazza as you will get a much faster response there.

If you email me, use your utoronto email, any other email address will go directly to spam.

Also, in the subject write "CSCA08" to increase my chances of responding.
