About me

PhD Supervisor: Dr Matteo Galizzi

Interested in improving the lives of a broad range of people, Adam’s research uses a mixed-method approach to combine psychology, medicine, and behavioural science with epistemology, metaphysics, and pragmatism. His research projects include working with international charities and hospitals to improve mental health in the developing world, investigating the mechanisms that drive experiences of fun, and the practicalities of using fun to improve happiness, behaviour, and personal freedoms.

Adam holds a Master’s degree in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of East London and a Master’s degree in Physics from the University of Bristol. He also designs and teaches undergraduate courses and supervises Master’s level research at the University of Buckingham and the University of East London.

Before joining the PhD programme, Adam has worked in consultancy, product design, and coaching aimed at improving both physical and mental well-being, knowledge, and self-defence.
