Recently in a conference, I met a professor from an esteemed university and head of a research group I have been following. I told him about my research and he gave me his email address (though I could easily find it over the web, he personally wrote it down for me). He told me to write to him and he will direct me to his post-doc and see how we can collaborate. His research group has some testing facilities I would love to work with.
The following is the email I am aiming to write to him. Any corrections and/or suggestions will be highly appreciated.
Dear Professor XYZ,
Hope you are doing fine. We met at ABC conference, in TTT a couple of days ago. I introduced myself as the PHD student at 123 University and expressed my willingness to work on a collaborative project with your research group (utilizing your practical testbed for DDD project).
First of all, I appreciate the time you spent with me, and the opportunity to introduce myself, my research, and my interest in utilizing your testing facilities. Second, I would like your advice on how I can further proceed to initiate a collaboration between your research facilities and our RRR research group.
I will wait for your reply.
