Adam is an interdisciplinary scholar of religion whose research focuses on cognitive and social-scientific theories of religious experience and identity, with particular concern for how these frameworks help us understand the origins and propagation of minority religious movements. He is the author of two monographs, an edited collection, and several papers at the intersection of sociology, psychology, theology, and history. Since 2014, Adam has been a member of Durham’s Hearing the Voice project and also currently serves as Director of Research at the Institute for Faith and Resilience, a non-profit supporting knowledge and training in the area of religion and mental health.
