<-NARRATOR:-> Now listen to a conversation between two students of biology.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Are you still working in Professor Green's laboratory?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, he's been supervising my research...on eating behavior in mice.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Sounds interesting.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> It's fascinating.
I've got a few more observations and experiments to do-
it's another three months of work, and then I'll start writing my paper.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Wow, sounds like it'll be a great paper.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Thanks, I hope so.
There's a problem, though...
<-MALE STUDENT:-> What?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Professor Green's been invited to teach at a university in France for a semester,
and, obviously, I still need a lot of help with the project.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Hmm. What are you gonna do?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well,Professor Green suggested professor—[upspeak] Professor Baker?
That I could work with another...
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Oh I've heard of her-Professor Baker's quite famous.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah but I don't know her at all, and my research isn't in her area of expertise.
She works with fish...my work's on mice.
Not exactly the best match.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Well, you'd get to know her eventually,
and she's a great biologist,
so she'd still be able to help you even if your topic isn't exactly her specialty.
She may give you some new perspective on your work.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> I know-I'm considering it.
But still, I'm thinking about asking Professor Green if he could advise me long distance.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> That's a thought. You think he'd do it?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> He probably would,but...I don't know if it's a good idea.
I mean, he could always look at my data and read my write-ups through email...
but the thing is, he wouldn't be here to supervise my experiments.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah. Well, I'm sure you'll figure out the best thing to do.
Briefly summarize the woman's problem, then state which solution you would recommend. Explain the reasons for your recommendation.
