Adam Hinterthuer

Position title: Univ Relations Specialist, Media and Outreach


Adam serves as outreach and communications specialist for the University of Wisconsin’s Center for Limnology. Adam is also IJNR’s Director of Programs, which means he spends months lining up speakers, scouting locations and noodling topics in between programs, and days fretting about meeting schedules, herding cats and finding coffee.  He’s written about bisphenol-A in plastics for Scientific American, Asian Carp and electric fences for BioScience and one man’s crusade to clean the mighty Mississippi for the now defunct Plenty magazine. Once upon a time, he was a podcaster for Scientific American’s “60 Second Science.” Adam received his master’s degree in journalism from the University of Wisconsin School of Journalism and has a bachelor’s degree from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota.
