I’m Max Bennett. I’m interested in how novel technology and human-centered design can augment and improve quality of life on earth.

Currently I work on projects in human-computer interaction, neuroscience, and robotics as a freelance technical product manager, creative technologist, or software engineer.

Recently, I finished my M.S. at Columbia University studying comp. sci. and neuroscience, where I worked in the 3D Graphics and UI lab building XR rehabilitation games with/for teens with cerebral palsy, and also in the DPMLab developing an open source python package that uses DNNs to predict fMRI responses to visual stimuli.

In the past, I was the robotics product manager at Kindred, and a researcher at Tufts University’s Human-Robot Interaction Lab. I also make art. Feel free to contact me.
