- This year I founded and am currently running the seminar on applied algebra and geometry at MIT.
- In 2015-2016 I coorganized the seminar on applied algebra at the Berkeley math department together with David Dynerman.

- In the fall of 2017 I mentored two undergraduate students via the Undergraduate Research Opportunity (UROP) program at MIT. We worked on a research project titled "Decomposing Tensors into Equiangular Tight Frames".
- In the year 2018 I am mentoring and working on two research problems with high-school students via the PRIMES program. These projects study different aspects of piecewise linear supermodular functions and their associated subdivisions
- I have given lectures in the Berkeley Math Circle each year from 2012 to 2016.
