Pronouns: he/him/his

Adam received his PhD in Bioinformatics from Boston University. His primary research interest is to better understand the genomics characteristics of neurodegeneration in human tissue using bioinformatics and machine learning approaches. His neurodegenerative disease research involves identifying commonalities and differences between different neurodegenerative diseases, with the goal of finding common pathological mechanisms that may lead to novel treatment modalities. He has particular expertise in the analysis of post mortem human brain tissue and cerebrospinal fluid transcriptomes, and has made significant contributions to our understanding of Huntington's, Parkinson's, and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). He also has methodological interests in metatranscriptomics in contexts ranging from Caribbean coral ecologies to connections between the central nervous system and the human microbiome. In addition to his independent research, he serves as Director of Graduate Studies for the BU Bioinformatics Masters program, as Director of Bioinformatics for the VA PTSD Brain Bank, and is a member of the BU Alzheimer's Disease Research Center and BU CTE Center.
