Max is a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for International Security and Cooperation, the Stanford Center for AI Safety, and the Stanford Existential Risks Initiative at Stanford University. I am advised by Prof. Clark Barrett, Prof. Steve Luby, and Prof. Paul Edwards.

With his research, he wants to make AI systems more secure and safe to use. Specifically, he is focussing on how to improve the robustness and alignment of language models, how to make their inner workings more interpretable, and how to reduce the potential for misuses.

He received his Ph.D. in August 2023 from the Physics Department at the Technical University of Munich and previously a B.Sc. and M.Sc. from the Ruprecht Karl University of Heidelberg.
