- I sometimes lead ‘Twitter reading groups’
- In early June 2018, I led a reading group on the topic of ‘Recent Advances in Variational Approximation’, which can be found here.
- The slides for this reading group are located here.

- In late June 2018, I led a reading group on the topic of ‘Functional Analysis, Inverse Problems, and Deep Learning’, which can be found here.
- The slides for this reading group are located here.
