    I co-organize the following seminars at Rutgers:

    Number Theory Seminar

    As part of our NSF FRG, Darren Long, Alex Lubotzky, Alan Reid, and I are organizing an educational workshop at IAS (Princeton), on Thin Groups and Super Approximation in Geometry and Arithmetic, March 28 - April 1st, 2016. It is supported in part by the NSF, BSF, IAS, and Rutgers.

    Dubi Kelmer and I are organizing an AMS Eastern Sectional Meeting (Nov 14-15, Rutgers) Special Session on Number theory, spectral theory, and homogeneous dynamics.

    Jeff Lagarias, Will Abram, and I are organizing an AMS-MAA Invited Paper Session at the MAA Centennial (Aug 6, 2015, DC) on the Arithmetic of Spheres.

    Uri Shapira, Tammy Ziegler, and I organized an Special Session on Dynamics and Number Theory for the Joint International Meeting of the AMS and IMU (Israel Math Union), June 16-19, 2014.

    Dubi Kelmer and I organized an AMS Eastern Sectional Meeting (Apr 6-7th, 2013, Boston College) Special Session on Counting and Equidistribution on Symmetric Spaces.
