TMF Student Seminar, Fall 2021 (joint with Connor Grady).

Introduction to the Stolz-Teichner program, summer 2021 (a series of 10 informal zoom talks).

"Active learning seminar" on supersymmetric quantum mechanics, Spring 2020.

Elliptic cohomology and physics, May 2020 (funded by the Perimeter Institute) joint with Theo Johnson-Freyd, Nora Ganter, Yaping Yang, and Gufang Zhao.

Elliptic cohomology days, June 2019, (funded by the NSF) joint with Emily Cliff, Nora Ganter, and Arnav Tripathy.

Geometric Representation Theory and Equivariant Elliptic Cohomology, June 2019 (funded by the NSF and AMS) joint with Emily Cliff, Nora Ganter, Andrei Okounkov, Arnav Tripathy, and Josh Wen.
