Co-organizer, Workshop on the philosophy of machine learning (March 17-18, 2018; workshop website)
I served as the grad student representative for LPS during the 2017-18 academic year.
I designed, administered, and analyzed a climate survey for my academic department in 2019. The survey, along with some thoughts about its design, can be found here. I can share the r file I used for analysis through email, as well as answer any specific questions you might have.
I am organizing (along with Darby Vickers, Jingyi Wu, Kaetlin Taylor, and Stella Moon, all at UC-Irvine) an information workshop for students from disadvantaged backgrounds who want to apply for philosophy graduate programs. I plan to hold this workshop in September 2019. I wish to develop it into a long-term repeated project. Read more about the project here.
