Max Friederich came to Stetson on a soccer scholarship and has distinguished himself in the classroom and in his research.
Max, according to professors, listens intently at first and, only then, buckles down to produce high-caliber work. He is inquisitive -- whether it be in abstract economic thinking, applied economic research or in the classroom, typically, Max's comments and questions are socially and economically relevant and increase the dynamics of the classroom environment. Max is passionate about having a positive impact on his peers both in and outside the classroom.
Max conducted econometric research at a level commensurate with graduate work. His research studies the effects of family characteristics, such as birth order and family size, on an individual's income. This longitudinal study involves building a dataset of more than 6,000 observations of the same individuals over 20 years. Characteristically, the research promises to yield significant, robust results.
