Personal profile

Public Profile

Max is currently employed as a Senior Data Scientist by the ROSA Project, focusing on the analysis of large complex empirical datasets possessed by ROSA and the partners. The key objective behind the analysis is to extract functional information enabling targeted as well as system-wide interventions in order to improve quality of life for people close to enter or entered the age care system. 

Max obtained his PhD in computational statistics from the University of Melbourne in 2008, with his doctoral thesis dedicated to the design and implementation of novel exact inference procedures as applied to clinical trials.

Max's expertise is in using a combination of statistical learning, categorical data analysis and prediction modelling for extracting informative and functional patterns contained in empirical datasets.

Being a loyal, dedicated and enthusiastic team player, Max has a demonstrated ability of generating effective ‘outside-the-box’ solutions to a wide range of applied problems. In his view, technical expertise, natural intuition and the sense of practical relevance are the main ingredients for professional success.
