Max Goldberg

Max is a junior in Pierson College majoring in Ethics, Politics and Economics. After arriving at Yale expecting to study astrobiology, Max now focuses on the law as an intersection of public and private life, and is especially interested in global governance, the role of law in social and economic change change, and legal reform in the People’s Republic of China. When he’s not busy writing mediocre philosophy papers or fussing with an uncooperative line of code, Max is an amateur astronomer and enjoys and experimenting with statistical programming. Outside of the classroom, Max is the president and founder of the Financial Literacy and Justice Task Force, Max leads a group of Yale students teaching personal finance at local New Haven public middle and high schools with the belief that increasing financial literacy in the community helps to promote upward social mobility and greater equality of opportunity. In his free time, you might find Max in the gym listening to kitschy Chinese pop, rereading Nabokov, or face-down on a beanbag chair contemplating his life decisions.

Thomas Gould

Thomas is a student in Timothy Dwight College, class of 2019.  He is interested in art, philosophy, math, and adding to his ever-expanding book collection.  In his down-time you may find him on the lower level of bass library (AKA the pits of hell) to which he has lost his soul long ago as a directed studies student.  You may also find him at a movie screening in the middle seat, third row down–or fourth, depending on the venue.  His favorite movie directors are Stanley Kubrick, Alfred Hitchcock, and John Hughes.  Compliment him on his bow-tie and he will love you forever.

Peter Rothpletz

Peter is a sophomore in Saybrook College double majoring in Global Affairs & Economics. Originally from Tewksbury, New Jersey, he grew up on a horse ranch and loves the outdoors. At Yale, he splits his time between running to East Rock, writing comedy sketches with The Fifth Humor, and covering all things political for the YDN. Otherwise, he’s probably curating an obnoxious music playlist or flexing his photography chops through masterful Snapchat stories.
