Adrian joined the lab in 2009 as a postdoc, after completing a PhD from Neuroinformatics from University of Edinburgh, Scotland, undergraduate degree in Mathematics from Cambridge University.  He created a new mathematical framework to view the problem of how the brain decides on the vigor of a movement: he posited that whereas a movement may be an opportunity to acquire reward, the objective is to perform movements in such a way as to maximize the rate of reward.  He showed that this led to an interesting prediction: as rate of movements are changed, the brain should change the vigor of movements.  Experiments that were performed by Thomas Reppert confirmed these predictions with surprising fidelity.  He joined the laboratory of Prof. John Krakauer in 2012.  He is now Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Neurology, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
