Adam Gray

Undergraduate Research Assistant

My name is Adam Gray, I am a senior in the Computer Science program at UNCW, with a systems focus. Outside of school I am a professional photographer, and I love every moment of it. Otherwise, whenever I can I love to go hiking, and spend time in the outdoors. Through Boy Scouts of America, I was able to pursue that love and eventually earn my Eagle Scout. In the lab, I am most excited to learn new and exciting uses for artificial intelligence, and be surrounded by other team members with the same goal.
