Adam began his Masters of Environmental Science in 2018 under the supervision of Dr. Courtney Mason.  He previously completed a Bachelor of Arts (Hon.) at Queen’s University in Political Studes and a Juris Doctor at the University of Calgary with a focus on environmental law. Adam has worked in a variety of capacities, including as a researcher for environmental non-profits, as a Federal Crown Prosecutor conducting prosecutions for Banff National Park, and as a private sector civil litigator. Combining a legal background and environmental interests, Adam’s research will focus on how to build modern and effective environmental legislation and protections, with a specific focus on comparative approaches to public lands and natural spaces both within Canada and around the world.  Adam is interested in processes which integrate stakeholders and consultation into the policy building and legislation development process to better address both current and future environmental challenges.  He recently won the 3 Minute Thesis Challenge at TRU and holds a Canada Graduate Scholarship (SSHRC) for 2019-2020.
