Adam Telleen has a Ph.D. in Plant Biology with an emphasis in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of California, Davis. He also did his undergraduate work at UC Davis, earning a B.S. degree in Biotechnology with a plant emphasis in 2000. Over his academic career, he has worked in several research labs studying a variety of plant systems including Arabidopsis, cotton, rice, and tomato and employing varied approaches from field work to molecular techniques and bioinformatics.
In addition, he has mentored numerous graduate, undergraduate, and high school students in the laboratory, which made him realize that teaching, not research, was his true calling. Currently, Adam is focusing primarily on teaching as an Adjunct Professor at both California State University, Sacramento and American River College. When he isn't teaching, he is usually hanging out with his cats, playing guitar, reading, hiking, or climbing mountains. He lives in Woodland with his wife and four cats.
