Background

In Spring of 2023, I am teaching: 

Co-organizer: I am co-organizing with Christopher Bendel, RuthElizabeth Conine (local organizer), Jonathan Kujawa, Zongzhu Lin and Laura Rider (local organizer) "Representation Theory and Related Geometry: Progress and Prospects", a 60th birthday conference in honor of Dan Nakano.  It is scheduled for June 3-7, 2024.  More information will be available later. 

Co-organizer: I am co-organizing with Bach Nguyen and Arik Wilbert the AMS special session Categorical Representations, Quantum Algebra, and Related Topics at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, AL for October 13-15, 2023.  More information will be available later. 

Co-organizer: I am co-organizing with Mikhail Khovanov, Peter Kronheimer, and Tomasz Mrowka a conference titled Instantons and Foams, which will be held on May 17-19, 2023 at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA.

Contemporary Mathematics: Hanna E. Makaruk (Los Alamos National Laboratory), Bach Nguyen (Xavier University of Louisiana), Robert M. Owczarek (University of New Mexico), and I are putting together AMS's Contemporary Mathematics volume for the sectional meeting in Oct 2022 at the University of Utah.  If you were a speaker and are interested in submitting a manuscript, please contact me.

Springer Series: Megan Breit-Goodwin, Kelly Jabbusch, Kuei-Nuan Lin, and I are the editors for Advances in the Mathematical Sciences volume for the Association for Women in Mathematics. 

Contemporary Mathematics: Bach Nguyen, Arik Wilbert, and I are putting together AMS's Contemporary Mathematics volume for the sectional meeting in Nov 2021 at the University of South Alabama. It is scheduled to be published in 2023.
