Max is a second-year graduate student who grew up on the oceans outside of Boston, and graduated from Berkeley with a B.S. in chemistry. He is interested in the electrochemistry of iron, and the dynamics and kinetics of its speciation in seawater. Currently, he is working on developing novel technologies for the detection of various forms of iron in natural seawater. Max loves surfing, spikeball, and playing music. They say on moonless summer nights, if you look out to sea and listen very closely, you may hear his voice on the breeze.
