I am a native speaker of American English.

My background is in computer science. I am fueled by coffee and a painful degree of empathy with usability test subjects.

I currently convert technical details to plain language for normal people, and convert normal language to technical details for programmers.

comment What is the best way to introduce myself in a letter to a prospective graduate adviser?
If you're concerned about the formatting of your links or other information, perhaps try using plain text format (if your email software allows it) and sending the draft message to yourself. You may want to include the full URL rather than just some linked text (write out "http://example.com" instead of "my resume" ) so that even the simplest email software doesn't garble it too badly. Best of luck! :)

I'd also suggest not including an attachment in an initial email unless the recipient has requested it. (Unexpected attachments can cause recipients hesitation, or get a message mistaken for junk mail.) Instead, just note after the summary of your experience that more details and a full CV/resume can be found at [URL].
