Dr. Adam Young is a member of the inaugural 2021-2022 "Future of Fire" cohort in the CASC Network Climate Adaptation Postdoctoral Fellows Program. He is working with the Alaska CASC at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

Adam's research interests are broadly focused on understanding how weather and climate impact terrestrial ecosystems. Adam obtained a B.S. in Environmental Biology from SUNY ESF in 2011. He then went on to earn an M.S. in Statistics and a Ph.D. in Natural Resources from the University of Idaho in 2018. His dissertation used large-scale spatial analysis to study how fire regimes in Alaska respond to changes in climate and vegetation.

In his free time, Adam enjoys spending being outside, including trail running, backpacking, and camping.
