Adam joined the Evans School in 2014 after spending six years working as a data specialist for a private data services company. During his time in the private sector, he earned a Master of Science in applied economics from the Colorado School of Mines, focused primarily on energy economics and climate change mitigation policy.

At the Evans School, Adam's primary interest has been in the economics of environmental and natural resource management, particularly the application of network and discrete choice econometric techniques to questions of how individuals share environmental information and trade for access to natural resources.
