I've been working on properties of Selmer groups for elliptic curves using class groups of number fields, as well as properties of Dessins d'Enfants. I run an REU which focuses on understanding properties of Belyi maps, and I maintain my own blog about Dessins d'Enfants.

I try to stay active within various professional organizations:

- I am the President of the National Association of Mathematicians (NAM). Become a member!!
- I will soon be a member of the Committee on Meetings and Conferences through the American Mathematical Society (AMS).
- I am the Chair of the Committee on Graduate Students under the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) Council on Programs and Students in the Mathematical Science as well as the Committee on Minority Participation in Mathematics under the MAA Council on the Profession.
- I am on the Human Resources Board (HR) at the American Institute of Mathematics (AIM) in San Jose, CA.
- I am on the Board of Directors for the Initiative for Mathematics Learning by Inquiry (MLI).

I try to organize events:

- From March 24-25, 2017, I co-hosted NAM's Regional Faculty Conference on Research and Teaching Excellence (FCRTE) at Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA.
- On July 25, 2017, I will host the 2017 Indiana Undergraduate Mathematics Research Conference at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN.
- From September 29 through October 1, 2017, I co-hosted NAM's Undergraduate MATHFest XXVII at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn, NY.

I also try to give lots of talks and attend conferences to represent NAM; you can subscribe to my travel schedule here: Personal Travel Schedule.

- On September 14, 2017, I gave a colloquium talk in the Department of Mathematics at the Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA.
- On September 25, 2017, I gave a colloquium talk in the Department of Mathematics at the Spelman College in Atlanta, GA. I also gave a short presentation at the Mandatory Math Majors Meeting (MMMM).
- On October 6, 2017, I will give a colloquium talk in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA.
- From October 18-19, 2017, I will attend the 2017 Modern Math Workshop in Salt Lake City, UT.
- On November 10, 2017, I will give a colloquium talk in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Texas at Arlington in Arlington, TX. I will also give a talk for the Mid Cities Math Circle.
- From December 6-8, 2017, I will attend the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS) Winter Meeting in Alexandria, VA.
