Our People

 

Max van der Weerd

Communications Associate

Max received his bachelor’s degree in Economics and Political Science from Columbia University in 2015. At university, his love for behavioral economic research manifested in a pilot study on the applicability of honesty research to group settings. He has also taught economics at a high school level, being sure to underscore the traditional principles with behavioral ideas whenever possible. At BEworks, Max functions as a communications associate, working hard to modestly communicate our greatness.

Max’s favorite things about BEworks are that people will graciously laugh at his bad jokes and that they understand his academic references while only sometimes calling him out for being a nerd.
