Adam is a fluvial geomorphologist who is studying how small fish respond to changing currents in river systems using experimental geomorphic methods. By utilizing machine learning and deep learning methods to track small fish in hydraulic flumes, he expects to learn how small fish organize themselves in complex, turbulent river flows in order to navigate through currents in river systems. Further, Adam also enjoys using geospatial data in GIS and cartographic design to build geovisualizations of research and other related environmental issues that involve fish.
