Adam is a third-year student studying chemistry. He first worked for the Tirrell lab in the summer of 2013 at the University of California, Berkeley, with Laurie Mlinar. There he worked on the development of micelles for targeted drug delivery to treat atherosclerosis as well as the encapsulation of proteins by coacervates. Now in Chicago, he is working under the guidance of postdoctoral researcher Samanvaya Srivastava on polyelectrolyte complex frameworks using nanoparticles and block copolymers.
