Some recent things of interest

In June 2018 James Reid and I organized a minisymposium on Matroids Theory at the SIAM Discrete Math Conference.

I organized Graph Theory Day at Brooklyn College on April 14, 2018 and helped organized Discrete Math Day at Queens College on Oct 21, 2017 with several colleagues.

On Feb 22 2017 Benjamin Carp and I organized a workshop on "Surveillance and the First Amendment." It was live streamed on Facebook and is available in full here. I opened the workshop and my talk is at the end.

In June 2016 Kira Adaricheva and I organized a minisymposium on Matroids and Antimatroids at the SIAM Discrete Math Conference.
