Maxwell Wang, a former NetMath (Calculus & Mathematica) student at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, became fascinated with calculus and exploring Mathematica from a young age. After dropping out of high school, he started his undergraduate studies in electrical engineering at Washington Univ. in St. Louis in 2013 as a young teenager and graduated early in spring, 2016. He afterwards worked at the University of California, San Francisco on linking patterns between the structural and functional connectivity of the brain. He is now an MD/PhD student at University of Pittsburgh & Carnegie Mellon University Medical Scientist Training Program where he is a 3rd year PhD student in Machine Learning (School of Computer Science) and Neural Computation (Neuroscience Institute) at CMU. His interests include neuromodulation and dynamical learning. He is currently supported by the Hertz Fellowship.

Outside the lab, Maxwell loves to convey his emotions through classical ballet movements.
