Adam returned to graduate studies at UB in 2020 after spending a little over a decade teaching K-12 in Chattanooga. A fluvial geomorphologist with interests in how river system form and process work with biological components in river channels, Adam is keen on working with experimental models that demonstrate how fish and mussels impact channel hydrology and other resources associated with river systems. An avid mountain biker, you might see Adam on his green Kona on trails around Western New York.
