Adam Fox was born and raised in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. He earned a BS and an MA in psychology from Western Michigan University and a PhD in psychology (with a specialization in Behavior Analysis) from West Virginia University before coming to St. Lawrence. His research focuses broadly on the experimental analysis of human and non-human behavior—particularly as it relates to choice and time. He uses quantitative methods and laboratory models to study the variables that control behavior in our complex world. Recently his lab has been investigating learning and behavior in rat models of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). He is also interested in using behavior-analytic principles to improve the relationships humans have with domesticated animals (applied animal behavior research) - especially horses. He enjoys spending time outdoors on the farm with his wife, their son Luther, and their animals. He is also an avid runner, and plays bass guitar in his wife's band.
