I served as General Chair for the 26th International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML-2009). The conference was held at McGill University in Montreal. For more information, please see

I co-chaired the Eighteenth International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML-2001) with Carla Brodley from Purdue University. The conference was held at Williams College.


I am the co-chair of CRA-WP (the Computing Research Association Committee on Widening Participation in Computing Research). Prior to becoming co-chair, I co-organized mentoring events for undergraduates interested in research and graduate school.

I was a co-director of CREU (Collaborative Research Experiences for Undergraduates) from 2009 to 2016.

CRA-W celebrated 25 years of mentoring! Check out this short video:

Computer Science Education

Java: an Eventful Approach

I was a member of the Liberal Arts Computer Science Consortium (LACS).

ACM Task Force on Data Science.
This project identified the computing discipline-specific components necessary for an undergraduate data science program.

ACM/IEEE-CS Joint Task Force on Computer Science Curricula 2013 (CS2013).
Jointly sponsored by ACM and the IEEE-Computer Society, CS2013 was an effort to define curricular guidelines for undergraduate programs in Computer Science on an international level. I was a member of the CS2013 Steering Committee.
