Service + Activities

This page is for service and activities in the broadest sense; anything that doesn't quite fit under research or teaching, you can find it here. That includes baking.

If I am taking on a new service or activity, it has to bring me joy or serve the math community in a way that I think is positive. If I don't feel certain of either of those things, then I won't be taking part.

Why? Math is political. If it wasn't, then I could do math in peace as a Black Bahamian woman. Instead I spend so many invisible hours trying to find and build math community to be a part of.  I love the idea of having a math community that I don't have to beg to be treated as an equal in. I want my energy to be put toward fulfilling that goal for me and for others.

Current-ish Activities

Big Ideas In Dynamics: An AIM Research Community for Graduate Students in Dynamics launched in February 2023! It's co-organized by Benjamin Call and myself. It focuses on collaborative learning among graduate students in dynamical systems, specifically smooth dynamics, ergodic theory, and homogeneous dynamics. We hope to build connections across institutions, and strengthen the reading, research, and collaboration skills of current and recent graduate students.
