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 Carleton in 2002. Adam’s academic interests are in combinatorial matrix theory, linear algebra, graph theory, and equity, inclusion, & access 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.

Adam is the current Director of Mathematics Placement.
