Adam graduated from Oxford University in 2001 and began his career working in institutional sales and trading, building out trading, risk and regulatory infrastructure for the global interest rate derivatives desk at Morgan Stanley.
In 2012, Adam took a sabbatical to study for a Masters in Machine Learning at Columbia, focused on statistical learning models and computational learning theory, in addition to working as a TA and on Natural Language Processing research projects with Prof. Michael Collins.
Whilst building out machine learning technology for a London based Venture Capital firm, Adam became fascinated with blockchain technology, and specifically in the intersection between innovative and cutting edge public blockchains and traditional financial infrastructure and products.
Adam joined Polymath in 2018 as the Head of Blockchain, helping Polymath to bring blockchain based financial technology to the market which helps to solve some of the fundamental issues in today’s financial infrastructure and bridging the gap between traditional financial approaches and public blockchains. He is now the CTO at Polymath, helping to drive forward Polymath’s technical agenda and mission.
Polymesh, a domain specific blockchain built by Polymath for financial regulation, products and capital markets, is both public and permissioned, leveraging a distributed ledger for flexibility, transparency and openness, alongside an on-chain governance system to on-board participants and key ecosystem participants.
