Contact the TAs
The TA e-mails are listed below. Before you e-mail the TAs, make sure that
1. your question is not answered in the FAQ page.
2. your question is not already posted in the forum.
If your question is of interest to other students, the TA will ask you to post it in the forum. You can save time by posting your question there directly. Since more TAs will see it, you will probably receive an answer faster than if you had e-mailed one particular TA. Also, you may not know who is the most qualified TA to answer your question, and e-mailing all of them is just bad behavior. If you post it in the forum instead, the TAs qualified to answer will be the ones answering your post.
If your question is of a private nature, then choose the TA you would like to e-mail from the list below. If you decide to e-mail more than one TA, e-mail them jointly, and make it clear in your message. This way they will know about who is attempting to solve your problem, and how it is progressing.

Undergraduate TAs - SEE UPDATES SOON
Undergrad TAs should be your main resource. They have been through my course, so they know my style. They know the material, since they were all very successful in the course. These are the same TAs holding the forum Live Help Events.
This TAs specialize in the course material, although they can help with anything related to the course. They come to classes and take notes, so if you missed class you can come to their office hours to fill the gaps.
Thomas van der Straaten
These TAs specialize in Stata, although they can help with anything related with the course. They teach the Stata recitations and should be your main resource for Stata and homework questions.
The grad TAs provide support for several activities in this course. Most of their roles are related to the preparation of this course, so they don’t often deal directly with students. You can learn some of their roles here, but I recommend that you contact the undergrad TAs first if you have questions.
Student support TA:Holds regular office hours and oversees the forum activities. He also grades the homeworks and the replication.
Exam TA:Grades the material questions in the midterms and final. She also grades the essay question in the final.
Project TA:Grades the paper questions in the midterms and the final project.
