Recent and Ongoing Professional Service

  • Washington eXperimental Mathematics Lab
    Since Spring 2023 I have been running a WXML project on computing fractional dimensions of large data sets. Stay tuned for more!
  • QuMa: Queer and Trans in Mathematical Analysis
    I am currently organizing QuMA, a hybrid workshop taking place in Bilbao, June 12th-14th 2024. Registration and applications for contributed talks open now!
  • UW Postdoc Seminar
    I am currently organizing the postdoc seminar, a seminar for early career mathematicians (especially those on the job market) to give a talk to a general audience and get feedback in a friendly environment.
  • UW Rainwater Seminar
    From Autumn 2020 to Spring 2023 I have been an organizer of Rainwater seminar (the seminar covers a broad range of topics in Modern Analysis).
  • AMS Current Events Bulletin
    From 2020 to 2023 I have been a member of the CEB committee organized by David Eisenbud.
  • AMS Special session on Analysis on Metric Spaces at JMM 2022
    I am co-organizing a special session at the 2022 Joint Mathematics Meeting. The session is related to the 2020 Mathematics Research Community with the same name.
  • IAS MC@Home
    Together with Helmut Hofer, in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, since April 2020 I am organizing an invitation only Zoom version of Mathematical Conversations, called Mathematical Conversations @Home (MC@Home). The seminar is still informal and still includes a happy hour.
  • Stony Brook Directed Reading Program (DRP)
    In my last year of graduate school I mentored a student on the study of Hausdorff measure and dimension.

Past professional service, community work, and extra-curricular activities can be found in the relevant sections of my CV.

Stony Brook Analysis Student Seminar

Together with Jack Burkart, I have founded, and organized for three years, the Analysis Student Seminar (ASS) at Stony Brook. Below you can find the topics we covered and the relative webpages.
