AARMS/DMSGSA Summer School 2016 Student Conference [link]

- Organizer and Session Chair.
- Funded by the Dalhousie Mathematics and Statistics Graduate Students' Association (DMSGSA), this conference was intended to complement the Summer School being run at Dalhousie University by the Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences (AARMS). My duties included soliciting and scheduling speakers, scheduling catering services, creating the conference website, booking the speaking space and advertising the conference to the Dalhousie mathematics community.

Dalhousie Mathematics and Statistics Graduate Students' Association

- President: Sept. 2015 to Present
- An executive member of the Dalhousie Mathematics and Statistics Graduate Association. My primary role overseeing the operations of the society, including its ratification. I am also responsible for chairing meetings of the society, to act as co-signer for the accounts of the society and to act as a liaison between the society and the Dalhousie Association of Graduate Students.

- Lett Bursary Representative: Sept. 2013 to Sept. 2015
- An executive member of the Dalhousie Mathematics and Statistics Graduate Association. My primary role was to meet once a term with administration to fairly allocate scholarships to graduate students in need. I also help organize association events and fundraisers.

- Department Liaison: Sept. 2012 to Sept. 2013
- An executive member of the Dalhousie Mathematics and Statistics Graduate Association. My primary role was to attend all faculty meetings and compose a graduate student newsletter informing them of changes relevant to our graduate experience. I also helped organize association events and fundraisers.

Math Circles Nova Scotia [website]
