Max studies eutrophication and is working to understand the dynamics of harmful algal blooms on the Charles River. He is interested in translating ecological research into tools that can be used by the design community to better manage aquatic pollution. Max has been working to design and permit a pilot-scale floating wetland that was installed on the Charles River in June of 2020. He hopes that data collected from this project can be used to evaluate existing regulatory models and to understand the role that restored habitat can have in controlling toxic algal blooms.
