Dear Cesar,

I had a last minute appointment and I am not sure if I will manage 15:00. Maybe can 15:30 or 16:00.

Let me know if this would still be ok or too late

Then we could leave it for next week.

Dear Professor, thank you very much for taking the time.

I think I fit well with the research interest and I would love to work with you... but:

  • My family and research field is here in Asia
  • I need to maintain a part-time role in my company MakerBay 

I feel capable to deliver my research working remotely and I double-checked the requirements,

If you think that there is a chance that I could research remotely and maintain a few hours a week to maintain my existing business and employees, I will continue the application process. I do not want to create expectations that I would not be able keep. Years ago, I would have no children, no employees, it would have been much simpler for me... I admire your work and I would love to work with you, I hope we can make some arrangements to make it possible.

Please let me know if you would consider it.

Dear Cesar,

I understand.

I really would like to work with you, so if you have checked with administration, and its ok, I am sure we will find a solution when the time arises.

So please go ahead with application preparation if you are interested, I would gladly be main supervisor.

Best regards and have a great weekend


Thank you so much for your understanding.

I will contact Mari Devik now.

Best regards,
