This ability has traditionally been studied mainly by means of psychological tasks and experiments, but Max studies it in the natural context of human communication and interaction. Combining techniques from linguistics, narratology, data science and artificial intelligence, he analyses how children and adults take in and elaborate other people's perspectives in conversations, stories and other forms of language use. His research links together the humanities, the social sciences, and the exact sciences. Max finds it both enjoyable and important to talk about science not only to students but also to a wider audience. His publications appear, in English and Dutch, in both scholarly and popularising contexts.
