Maxwell Patterson

Pronouns: he/him

I graduated from Brown University in 2023 with a degree in applied mathematics and economics while playing on the varsity water polo team for four years. In my undergraduate experience, I focused my studies in economics courses on food systems and regeneration strategies in addition to studying culinary arts at Le Cordon Bleu in the summer of 2022. I am now pursuing a masters in environmental data science at the Bren School at UC Santa Barbara. I spent two summers working at the Natural Capital Project based out of Stanford University, where I built out species spatial maps and researched forest growth models for a start-up founded by two PhD students. I am passionate about working with data, and integrating deep learning and pattern theory in particular, to drive policy and investment in the future to build more sustainable, interconnected and equitable systems and methodologies.
