Adam arrived at St. Olaf in 2009 after receiving his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. He is no stranger to Northfield, however, as he earned his B.A. from another Northfield liberal arts school in 2002. Adam’s academic interests are in combinatorial matrix theory, linear algebra, graph theory, and issues in undergraduate mathematics education. Despite his time in Wisconsin, Adam remains an avid Twins and Vikings Fan. In his spare time, Adam enjoys cooking & baking, watching reality television (especially Survivor), and complaining about his CrossFit workouts.
