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 been working with Dr. Brandon Miller, who teaches at West Philadelphia’s Workshop School (WS), on designing a math modeling class for high school students. Brandon and I hope to build a strong modeling culture at WS, so we can enter modeling competitions such as the SIAM’s Math Modeling Challenge.
I’m on the advisory board for the Black Doctoral Network. I attended the first three annual conferences, where I sat on panels and gave workshops. I am impressed with the resourcefulness of the people involved and try to assist however I am able to.
I have been a faculty affiliate for the Center of Race and Equity at the University of Pennsylvania since June 2014.
I’m a strong supporter of CAARMS. I’ve attended two meetings and presented research at one of those meetings. Professor Bill Massey has done a fantastic job of providing a platform for and building community amongst African-Americans in the mathematical sciences.
