frankly, I did not read your papers in detail, but…

A very refreshing email from a PhD candidate from abroad:

“Franchement j’ai pas lu encore vos papiers en détails, mais j’apprécie vos axes de recherche et j’aimerai bien en faire autant  avec votre collaboration, bien sûr. Actuellement, je suis à la recherche d’un sujet de thèse et c’est pour cela que je vous écris. Je suis prêt à négocier sur tout point et de tout coté.”

[Frankly I have not yet read your papers in detail , but I appreciate your research areas and I would love to do the same with your help , of course.  Currently, I am looking for a thesis topic and this is why I write to you. I am willing to negotiate on any point and any side.]
