As a Boren Fellow, Adam plans to conduct research at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He plans to develop a web application that facilitates international and interdisciplinary collaboration in the description and study of complex systems. The main purpose of conducting this research in Israel is to study Israeli academic culture and nonverbal modes of communication in order to design the web application to facilitate aspects of in-person collaboration that are hindered by current approaches to remote collaboration. Adam also plans to utilize his time in Israel to develop his Hebrew language skills, which he hopes to apply tutoring high school students and undergraduates while there.
