Here are a few notes for UCSB students:

  • My name is Matthew, and you are welcome to call me that!  "Professor Turk," "Doctor Turk," "Sir," etc. are all acceptable if you wish, but you will not offend me by calling me by my first name.  It's okay, really.  (I don't mind the others, but "Matthew" just seems simpler.)
  • I generally prefer "Matthew" rather than "Matt," but I'll respond to either.
  • You are always welcome to come by my office if you have a question or would like to talk.  However, keep in mind that (like all faculty - and students, for that matter) I'm often busy and I may ask you to come back later or to make an appointment.  If you want to talk for a significant chunk of time (say, more than 15 minutes or so) I'd appreciate it if you made an appointment with me first.
