Biography

Adam is from northwestern Indiana. He has worked as a technician or intern with the USFWS, Wisconsin DNR, the Delta Waterfowl Foundation, Purdue University, and Conservation Leaders for Tomorrow. Adam is working on his Ph.D. with Dr. Josh Stafford.

Research Interest

He is primarily interested in the ecology and conservation of game birds (upland game birds and waterfowl). His previous and current reserach focuses on understanding game bird population dynamics and habitat needs on privtely owned land in midwestern agricultural landscapes.
