After completing his Ph.D. at the University of Georgia, Adam has returned to California to assist with an ambitious landscape genetics project across the LA Basin. In collaboration with partners including the Natural History Museum of LA County and the National Park Service, he is spearheading sample collection of a diverse suite of plant, invertebrate, and vertebrate species across the urban-wildland interface. Adam’s prior expertise centers on the intersection of ecology and conservation policy for imperiled herpetofauna (particularly lizards) in California, Mexico, and Fiji.
