After graduate school at the University of Virginia, Adam served as a lecturer at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville for three years before landing at Wake Forest, where he currently works as a Teaching Professor of Philosophy. His teaching and research center on ethics and political philosophy (broadly construed). Over the past few years, he has developed interests in the role that hope can play in a flourishing human life as well as the philosophy of sport, and he is a part of Wake Forest's newly formed Disability Studies Initiative.
