Ph.D. in Physics, UNSW, 2001; B. Sc. (Hons) in Physics, UNSW, 1997.
Adam works on the development of nanoscale electronic devices for applications in bioelectronics. This includes work on the development of microscopy-capable nanoelectronics for simultaneous optical/electrical study of biomolecules and devices and circuits for ion-to-electron signal transduction. He also has interests in mixed conductivity systems where both ions and electrons contribute to conduction and device function. He has been working at UNSW since 2002, previously as an ARC Postdoctoral Fellow (2003 - 2006) and ARC Future Fellow (2010 - 2014) in the School of Physics. Adam has over 100 refereed research publications in areas ranging from physics to education research, and has recently co-edited two books on nanotechnology research in Australia.
