Adam grew up in the Chicago area (AKA the deep-dish flatlands) and completed his undergraduate education at Loyola Marymount University. He joined the lab in August of 2018 as a neuroscience graduate student. Since starting his degree, he has used various brain-imaging techniques to characterize neurodevelopment, the relationship of neuronal structure to function, and plasticity in the brain. His first paper in the lab examined the utility of multi-shell diffusion models (Pines et al., Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience 2020). Currently, he’s working on uncovering the neuroanatomical underpinnings of mood disorder risk and resilience. Whether or not he’s in lab, he can often be found smoking brisket or hiking.
