Adam is an aquatic ecologist with experience designing and implementing studies in lotic and lentic aquatic systems. His areas of expertise include limnologic and hydrologic data analysis with R, lake and stream field sampling, and scientific writing. Prior to joining Stillwater Sciences in February 2020, Adam received his doctorate at the University of California, Santa Barbara, comparing high-elevation California lakes and reservoirs to determine their downstream effects on water chemistry and benthic macroinvertebrate communities, as well as quantifying carbon dioxide emission from alpine water bodies. Adam’s research experience is interdisciplinary, combining physical, chemical, and biological datasets to understand water management control on water quality in California. In his spare time, he enjoys hiking and backpacking in the Sierra, playing with his two cats, and planning a next trip to Hawaii.
