Academic Placement Data and Analysis (APDA) is a research project funded by the American Philosophical Association and the UC Merced Senate. The primary purpose of this project is to make information on placement useful to prospective graduate students in philosophy. We have released three reports so far: in August 2015, April 2016, and August 2016, and our work has been discussed in the Chronicle of Higher Education.


The Emory-Tibet Science Initiative (ETSI) is a teaching-focused program that aims to bring science education to Tibetan monasteries in exile. I volunteered to teach neuroscience for the 2015 program at Ganden, covered in the Fall 2015 issue of the UC Merced Magazine and mentioned in CIS news.


Neuphi was a monthly workshop at Boston University that hosted talks at the intersection of philosophy and neuroscience from 2007-2012, but now exists as a Vimeo group, mentioned in the New York Times.
