I am on the Steering Committees for FOCS, ITCS, and FORC, and on the editorial board for JACM. I am also on the Advisory Board of a new open access journal TheoretiCS. I was recently Program Chair for the 2019 Innovations in Theoretical Computer Science (ITCS) Conference, on the Organizing Committee for the STOC 2018 and STOC 2017 Theory Fest, and a member of the SafeToC committee.

Though I am no longer at CMU, I endorse the CMU SCS Reasonable Person Principle which basically asks to be reasonable and assume everyone else is doing likewise.
