Why LEO?

"I believe those closest to a problem have the best solutions. This principle inheres in LEO's research methods and partner relationships, as we are committed to producing strong insights without obstructing the practices of service providers or reducing their capacity to serve people in need. I joined LEO because I believe that causal evidence creation serves a critical role in the fight against poverty, and LEO does this with a constant dedication to ethical practices and humility."


Max works with LEO partners and university faculty to ensure the successful implementation of impact evaluations and to collect and analyze data. His current projects focus on transportation, homelessness, and poverty measurement. He holds a B.A. in Mathematics from Northwestern University.
