Max Panoff


I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. I earned my B.E. with a Concentration in Robotics and a Minor in Social Sciences from Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ.  During my time here at the University of Florida, I was awarded the Graduate School Preeminence Award at the University of Florida and have assisted in running two classes: IoT Security and Microprocessor Applications 2.
