- In the spring of 2019 I mentored Ali Zartash through the Undergraduate Research Opportunity (UROP) program at MIT. Our work is now written up in an article titled Kernel Density Estimation for Totally Positive Random Vectors.
- 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 mentored and worked on two research problems with two high-school students, Melinda Sun and Haneul Shin, via the PRIMES program. These projects studied 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.

- In the time of COVID-19, I am co-organizing the Algebraic Statistics Online Seminar together with Carlos Amendola, Mathias Drton, Elizabeth Gross, Sonja Petrovic, and Piotr Zwiernik.
- In 2017-2018 I founded the seminar on applied algebra and geometry at MIT. In the fall of 2018 the seminar took 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.
