Contact me

In summary: use Twitter if you want a quick reply.

  1. The quickest way to contact me is via Twitter.
  2. If you want to discuss research ideas or catch up with me, please feel free to send me an email to This is the only email account that I use to deal with ‘the public’.
  3. If you are not in a hurry you can send me old-fashioned mail in an actual envelope to: Dr Luis A. Apiolaza, School of Forestry, University of Canterbury, Private Bag 4800, Christchurch, New Zealand.
  4. If you are desperate you can call me at +64-3-364 2126, but the chances of me answering are fairly low. On top of that I don’t know how to retrieve messages from the voice mail system so don’t leave any.
  5. If you want to get a copy of my publications you can do so here. Please send me an email to if there is no PDF file for the publication you want in that page.
  6. If you want help with ASReml or ASReml-R please contact the ASReml forum, or read the ASReml cookbook or the ASReml-R cookbook. I struggle to run my own analyses and do not have time to run other people’s.
