CARE Graduate Student Researcher
Max (he/him/his) is a PhD student in Education (Higher Education and Organizational Change) here at UCLA. He earned his Master of Education in Student Affairs at UCLA, as well as a B.S. in Bioengineering at the University of California, Riverside. His research interests center on two distinct (though related) foci: race and racism on college campuses, as well as sexual violence on college campuses, particularly as it relates to queer Students of Color. As the Graduate Student Researcher (GSR) at CARE, he will be assisting in the implementation of sexual violence prevention programming, as well as conducting research, evaluation, and assessment of prevention education for the CARE Program. His research is primarily informed by Critical Race Theory, Intersectionality, and Quantitative Critical Theory (QuantCrit). Prior to his work with CARE, he worked as an Assistant Resident Director at UCLA Residential Life, and also has experience in ethnic, gender, and sexuality programming, as well as violence prevention education. When he’s not doing research and attempting to dismantle oppressive systems, he’s usually cuddling his cat (Luka).
