Service

I was on the program committee for OPT2016 at NIPS. I regularly review articles for several optimization journals and conferences. I have chaired sessions at the INFORMS 2016 international meeting and the INFORMS 2017 Annual Meeting. I have sat on panels that help students with fellowship applications, spoken at the Ithaca High School mathematics seminar, and I have helped students individually, too.
