Biography: Adam started his undergraduate degree at American University focusing on theoretical mathematics and earned a BS in Mathematics from Ramapo College of New Jersey. He earned an MS in Logic and Computation from Carnegie Mellon University where he was mentored by and worked with Nobel laureate, Dr. Herbert A. Simon, in exploring the use of cognitive architectures, physical symbolic systems, and production systems as a basis for human and machine thinking, and research pertaining to epistemological and philosophical questions in AI, e.g., is it possible for a computer running a program to have a "mind" and "consciousness" similar to humans? Their research resulted in several peer reviewed publications.

He has over 15 years’ experience, across several industries, in designing, developing, and managing advanced technologies to meet challenging information technology needs. He has held positions at Carnegie Mellon University, Columbia University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, and University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, UBS/PaineWebber Inc., and performed contract work for the US Department of Defense and NASA's Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center. He also held the rank of Assistant Professor at Konkuk University, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, in Chungju, South Korea for 4 years.

Adam has a strong entrepreneurial spirit, having founded and run several companies (consulting, design, medical information security, and consumer products). Prior to coming to SUNY-Korea he lived in Tartu, Estonia as part of the Buildit Accelerator program who invested in a company he was the CEO / Founder of, Toona Technologies OÜ.

Research: Adam’s research interests include the use of gamification to improve health, Internet of Things (IoT) systems, entrepreneurship (specifically hardware/software startups), STEAM education and curriculum development, philosophy of AI, Mind, and cognitive science, and intentionality.
