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

I often clean up after the receptions that follow department colloquia (although this is partially a selfish action, because it allows me to eat as much half-stale bread as I want).

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 Pacific APA and the 2017 Pacific APA.
