Adam is a graduating mechanical engineer at Duke University. He has created the content for and co-taught his house course “Mars: The Next Frontier” at Duke for two semesters that explored similar content to this Bass Connections research project. This past year, he took a year-long leave of absence from Duke to participate in NASA’s Pathways internship program. After graduation in May, he will be returning to NASA’s Johnson Space Center to work in one of the primary astronaut training facilities. He also will complete an M.S. in Space Architecture at the University of Houston part-time while working.
