He has over a decade of extensive research experience, has conducted hundreds of usability studies with thousands of participants in cities around the world, has been the Principal Investigator on numerous successful IRB reviewed studies, and has worked as a consultant for over a decade.

As an active member of the AAMI Human Factors Engineering Standards committee, Adam has personally worked on every one of the international standards that focus on the application of human factors engineering to the design and development of medical devices and drug delivery devices. These standards include: IEC 62366-1, IEC 62366-2, ANSI/AAMI HE75, and IEC 60601-1-6. In addition, Adam has reviewed and edited the AAMI technical information report (TIR) titled “Human Factors Engineering – Guidance for Contextual Inquiry” and is currently collaborating on a TIR titled “Integrating Human Factors Engineering into Design Controls”. These standards and TIRs drive human factors engineering work performed on medical device and drug delivery devices around the world and are instrumental in compliance with regulatory agencies.
