Biography

Adrian completed his BSc. in Biochemistry and Biotechnology from McGill University, and during that time worked in multiple academic and industrial research labs as well as acting as the McGill Science Undergraduate Research Journal’s co-Editor-in-Chief. He studied to receive his MSc. in Biochemistry at the University of Ottawa and during this time founded science podcast and radio show, Peer Review Radio, which several volunteers continue to produce on CHUO 89.1 FM. Adrian’s fascination with social media analytics and influence metrics led him to leave his Master’s and take a job with the Communications Directorate at the University of Ottawa as Online Community Specialist. He now blogs at AttentionEconomist.com and has spoken at a number of conferences about research on attention and its flow in online communities.
