Adam Houston is a current graduate student at the Yale School of the Environment (YSE) pursuing a Master of Environmental Management. He grew up in Seattle, Washington, on the land of the Duwamish and other Coast Salish tribes. After graduating from Yale College in 2018 with a degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, he returned to Seattle to work as the Production Manager at the University of Washington Farm, where he grew several acres of fruits and vegetables, led field trips, and taught classes.
At YSE he is studying nature-based solutions to climate change, including agricultural soil carbon sequestration, reforestation, and other practices for creating resilient food systems. In addition to growing food, Adam is passionate about bicycling, and you will most likely see him heading out on an adventure around New Haven along with his bike, Sam.
