Brief Bio: 

Max is a master's student in the information science program at UNC-Chapel Hill. He is interested in how to improve the ways people discover and manage information that they use to change their communities, with a focus on how people deal with environmental issues. The Internet holds great potential for better communication of environmental information, but Max also sees great value in understanding the "offline" ways that people have always used to communicate. One of the major barriers to environmental communication, whether or not it is online, is the difficulty people have in understanding information from disciplines outside their own. Max thinks it is very important to help individuals from different fields to understand each other in at least a rudimentary way. Before Max started his studies at UNC, he earned a bachelor's degree in Earth Systems from Stanford University and spent two years as an AmeriCorps volunteer at an environmental non-profit organization.
