Spreading my love of 



Hey there! Maximilian Du here! As a researcher, tinkerer, and YouTube educator, my goal is to show how awesome science can be, all while working on real-world issues!

Welcome aboard! 



My specialties are in electrical engineering, chemistry, mathematics, and artificial intelligence. On this website, you will see my research, "maker" projects, lab tour, AI art, photography, cooking recipes, and more! 


Scroll down to see what I love to do! 


Research is my largest time commitment. Projects include an intelligent stove that prevents kitchen fires (slide background), AI-assisted infant monitor, improved LSTM model, and measuring caffeine using solvent extraction.


Beyond research, I simply love making things, whether it be an arc welder from old microwaves, Tesla coils, or simply tumbling rocks.

Home Labs

Since fourth grade, I have been slowly building up a home electronics and chemistry lab. That's where all my research and explorations take place!

AI Art

I'm a big fan of scientific art! For example, I made a machine learning model that takes my own photographs and morphs them into the style of a famous artist.


More than just food for my machine-learning painter, photography for me is a combination of art, strategy, and technology.


To me, cooking is a form of edible engineering! In addition to cooking Thanksgiving dinner for my family each year, I am also interested in various forms of contemporary cooking, like Sous Vide


Writing is just a fun thing that I do to relax, whether it be free-verse poetry, satire, or short stories. I love to intertwine some science into my creative writing as well!


Orca Toolkit

Over the summer of my senior year, I wrote a research paper detailing the entire history of captive orcas. The paper is available online here, as well as the "toolkit" of multimedia exhibits 


I'm a big fan of satire, as well as various forms of scientific memes. Find my sense of humor, as well as some misc links below.
