I typically offer to help carry heavy/unwieldy objects if I notice someone with them.

I have organized some reading groups, including a Borders, Territory, and Obligations group (co-organizer, 2012-13), a Chinese, Islamic, and Indian Philosophy group (2016), a Feminist reading group (2016-18), and a value theory reading group (2016-18).

I was a commentator at the 2014, 2017, and 2018 Pacific APAs.

I served on the advisory board for the UCSD Summer Program for Women in Philosophy until 2018.
