Biographical details

Adam specialises in global health security and international relations. His research and teaching explores how governments and multilateral organisations cooperate and interact when adverse health events such as disease outbreaks, epidemics and pandemics occur, as well as how they respond to emerging health and security challenges. Adam’s most recent research examines civil-military cooperation in health and humanitarian crises, and the correlations between gender, sexuality, health and security.

Adam’s professional background before entering academia includes having worked as a health professional in emergency care and clinical risk management, a political adviser, and public servant in national health security and pandemic planning. Prior to joining the Centre for International Security Studies in November 2011, Adam worked as a Research Fellow at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine where he was employed on a 2.5 million Euro project that examined how different values, ideas, and beliefs have shaped global health policy. He currently serves on the editorial board ofGlobal Health Governance, Global Security: Health, Science and Policy, and the Journal of Health Diplomacy. Adam is also a co-convenor of the British International Studies Association Global Health Working Group, and an Executive Member of the International Studies Association Global Health section.

Adam is also the course director for the Master of Health Security, which is a new multidisciplinary initiative launched under the auspices of the Marie Bashir Institute for Infectious Diseases and Biosecurity (MBI).
