Hi everyone, I wanted to ask a question. How do you find out about a professor's demeanor, approach to problems, temperament, extraversion, introversion, and other things that enter into "researcher"/"grad-student' interactions? That's not something I can really e-mail a professor and ask them right off the bat, you know? Nor can I wander on down to the schools I'm interested in (far away as they are) and get a first impression of a professor. It would be ideal for me to work with a theoretical-particle-physicist who is knowledgeable and engaging (that is, when I start my PhD).
