- In 2017-2018 I founded the seminar on applied algebra and geometry at MIT. This semester the seminar is going to take the form of an "Applied Algebra Day" with 11 expert speakers from the field.
- 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.
