I was a research leader for the 2020 ADJOINT workshop.

One of the activities of my CAREER award was to create the Bridge to PhD program in the math department at the University of Pennsylvania. This would not have been possible without the help and support of my colleagues, especially Phil Gressman.

I’m a strong supporter of CAARMS. I’ve attended the 2011, 2014 and 2019 meetings and presented research at the 2011 and 2019 meetings. Professor Bill Massey has done a fantastic job of providing a platform for and building community amongst African-Americans in the mathematical sciences.

I was a plenary speaker at the 2018 Latinx conference at UCLA.

I gave the 2017 Dansby Lecture in the mathematics department at Morehouse College.

Since the fall of 2015, I’ve served as a mentor for students in the pre-freshman Summer Institute run by the Africana Department at the University of Pennsylvania.

I’ve served as a mentor for the math alliance since August 2017.  My first mentee was Ryan Pugh, who is now in graduate school at UC Santa Cruz!

I’m honored to have given talks at two Blackwell–Tapia conferences.  You can see my 2010 talk at Ohio State here and my 2014 talk at UCLA here.
