Maxim in 10 seconds

I'm a computer science student at Princeton University, originally from San Diego, CA.

I use computer science — primarily data science — to solve problems in biology and healthcare.

I've worked on a cancer immunotherapy team at Mount Sinai, the data science team at The New York Times, at Nest, at a neuroscience startup, and on research projects about evolutionary game theory, neuroscience, gerrymandering, and machine learning. I was lucky to be admitted to Princeton at age 15, and I dropped out of high school to attend.

In my free time, I play music (mostly jazz piano these days), travel, and read.

Side Projects

Most recently, two classmates and I built and launched ReCal, the app over 5,000 Princeton students have used for course selection.

I ran the 2014 Princeton Silicon Valley TigerTrek, the trip that brings 20 undergrads to Silicon Valley for a week of off-the-record Q&A with the legends of the Valley.
We met with Peter Thiel, Meg Whitman, John Doerr, Sal Khan, and others.

Legato Network is my piano tracking project for helping traveling musicians find pianos they can play on.
