Adam is a Pacific Island Archaeologist who lives on the island of Kosrae and has focused on the archaeology of the Micronesian islands over the past several years. He specializes in examining the settlement of low-lying atolls which acted as stepping stone islands for the settlement of larger areas of the Pacific. His most recent work was on Mwoakilloa atoll where he uncovered 1900 year-old layers at the bottom of a three-meter deposit associated with the initial settlement of Eastern Micronesia.. The potential for future sea-level rise threatens these early deposits. Adam is doing what he can to discover these early histories while the opportunity is still available.
