Adam Fortais (he/him) is a PhD candidate studying the physics of soft matter at McMaster University. Adam co-hosts the AlmaMac, a weekly radio show. Each week, hosts Adam, Shawn, and Matt talk to a researcher about their work — what inspires, excites, and makes them curious. If you’re curious about physics, biology, and everything in between, strap in for this interview!
