About Max...
With an undergraduate background in Ecology and Conservation Biology (Uppsala University, Sweden), Max went on to complete a Masters of Environment at the University of Melbourne specialising in Climate Change and International Development. During his extensive time spent traveling, Max developed a strong interest in human-environment interactions. Following his thesis work on the nexus of environmental and social justice, Max is particularly interested in pursuing further sustainability work in a developing countries context where there is often a direct conflict between environmental preservation and meeting livelihood needs.
