Originally from the Boston area, Max studied physics at Yale University. He graduated Magna cum laude and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa in 2014, having managed to study courses ranging from quantum mechanics to a class that covered all of Tolstoy’s major works. After college, Max started the Post-Bachelor Fellowship at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation in Seattle, Washington. There he undertook health economics research and attended graduate courses at the University of Washington. His research has been published in The Journal of the American Medical Association, The Lancet, and Health Affairs, among others. After two years of research in Seattle, the east coast beckoned Max home, and he is now a medical student at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.
Max’s academic strengths are math, physics, statistics, biostatistics, epidemiology, biology, and chemistry, and he welcomes working with students of any level. He can also tutor students in the SAT and MCAT, two tests on which he scored in the top percentiles.
When not studying, Max can be found running along the Hudson River, reading anywhere that sells coffee and has chairs, and exploring neighborhoods in New York City.
