Adam was a founding member of The Proto City and has served as the Managing Editor since April 2012.
The Proto City was founded by seven students from the Research Master’s in Urban Studies at the University of Amsterdam. The platform was established as a space to express our thoughts on urban phenomena outside the narrow focus of the academic world and to follow our interests that do not fit into an academic research schedule. The Proto City crosses disciplinary borders, from geography to urban planning and urban design to sociology. The blog is meant to be a platform for young and experienced academics, practitioners, students, and urban enthusiasts to share their ideas with our global readership.
Adam began working as an Editorial Assistant for ReliefWeb, a web service established by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, in October 2015.
