Max is currently enrolled in both the MAAS program as a first-year student and in Georgetown University’s B.S. in Foreign Service program as a fourth-year student through the dual-degree program. During his time at Georgetown thus far, Max has served as a research intern at the Middle East Institute and at RWR Advisory. With language proficiency in Arabic and Chinese, Max has devoted significant time to researching the historical and current political and trade relationships between the Arab World and China, and he hopes to continue to study these interactions at CCAS. Max also has strong interests in the religious traditions and politics of South Asia and hopes to incorporate this area of study into his academic trajectory at CCAS.
