Adam joined the Health Foundation in September 2018 as a public health registrar and is now a Senior Policy Fellow.

Alongside his role at the Health Foundation, Adam works as a Consultant in Public Health for three days a week in Oxfordshire, and is an Honorary Associate Clinical Professor at Warwick University. Since November he has been using some of his Health Foundation time to work as a Public Health Strategy Advisor to the Chief Medical Advisor at NHS Test and Trace.

Before joining the Health Foundation, he was a Harkness Fellow in Health Care Policy and Practice in the United States, based at The Dartmouth Institute. His research focused on how accountable care organisations and place-based health systems meet patients’ preventive care needs.

Adam studied medicine at Oxford and his DPhil is in Public Health Economics. As a public health specialty registrar and academic clinical fellow, he had various roles covering policy, practice, teaching, and research. In particular, he worked on modelling the health impact of public health policies, such as soft drink taxes.
