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 other fields.

In 2015, I worked on the data science team at The New York Times. Previously, I've worked at Nest, at a neuroscience startup, and on evolutionary game theory research.

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

Side Projects

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.

And most recently, my class team built ReCal, the app 1 in 2 Princeton students use for course selection.
